Using the document API to initiate a Signing workflow order
This article describes how to use the document API to initiate a Signing workflow order.
The purpose of this function is to initiate a signing workflow order with an already attached document (pdf).
This is useful when the signing order initiator works with a document in an external application and would like to start a signing order on the current document.
- Send the document (PDF) to Signing Workflow using the document API. This will return an order ID.
- Redirect the browser to https://<signing-workflow-host>:<port>/sign/create/Document-Signing/?fileuid=<order id>
- The end user must now authenticate to the Signing Workflow application. (The recommended solution is to use the same Identity Provider to login to the application AND Signing workflow - this will make Single-Sign On feasible)
- The Signing Workflow order is presented with the PDF attached. The end user now continues with selecting signer(s) of the document etc.
