Using the Automation API to create a Signing workflow order
This article describes how to use the Automation API to create a Signing workflow order.
The purpose of this function is to create a signing workflow order, using a pure HTTP call to the Automation API.
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.
- Use the
CreateOrderAPI call to create a new signing order. This call returns an order ID.
- Use the
GetOrderStatusAPI call , using the order ID, to poll for order status.
- 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.
- When the
GetOrderStatuscall returns ACCEPTED, use the
DownloadOrderDocumentAPI call to download the signed document.
