Hello Owais,

You can use storage service to achieve this objective. For this, first you need to create ACL enable app from AppHQ Management console and after that add your contact as a JSON document in storage service. After adding/saving JSON document in App42 database, you can provide access to those users whom you want to link on that document using grant access on doc feature of App42 Storage service. 

Kindly find some useful links below and let us know if it help:
