Adobe Sign is an electronic signature service provided by Adobe Systems. The Adobe Sign Module introduces Flow steps that allow users to create agreements, download signed documents, and retrieve agreement status. These steps use API integration, enabling seamless communication between Adobe Sign and other systems or applications, streamlining the electronic signature process. This integration ensures users can manage agreements, track progress, and access signed documents without manual intervention, saving time and enhancing workflow efficiency.


Add and configure Adobe Application

Creating an Adobe application is necessary to obtain API credentials (such as Client ID and Client Secret) that allow the application to authenticate and interact with Adobe Sign services using APIs securely.

  1. Navigate to  API > Acrobat Sign API > API Application and create a new application using the add icon on the top right.
  2. Provide a Name, Display Name, and choose the Domain type.
  3. Once the application is made, click on it and select "View / Edit."
  4. Retrieve the Application ID (Client ID) and Client Secret from this dialog. These credentials will be used for configuring the provider within Decisions.
  5. Click on the application and then the "Configure OAuth for Application" option.
  6. Configure the following:
    1. Redirect URL: {BasePortalURL}/HandleTokenResponse
    2. Scopes: These will depend on the use of the application. The ones mentioned below are the minimum ones to use the module steps.
      1. user_login:account 
      2. agreement_send:account 
      3. agreement_write:account
