eSignature API > API Documentation
API and Samplecode
The API is for developers, who want to integrate eSignAnyWhere into their application and for administrators, who want to script interactions with eSignAnyWhere (e.g. user synchronization).
Quick Overview: eSAW uses REST or SOAP (with JSON or XML) as API. We recommend the REST interface (see Sample Code C#, Hello World Tutorial, SOAP UI Tutorial, Postman Tutorial). The basic workflow is to upload a document (
uploadTemporarySspFile) and then call
sendEnvelope with a envelope configuration (for SOAP the Envelope XML). For more information about the envelope configuration please also have a look at the Beginner-Guide. The configuration consists out of the envelope part (workflow configuration) and for each recipient a definition and a signing configuration (workstep configuration). The workstep configuration is the description (as JSON for REST) of tasks for signer (e.g. Signature Fields, Form-Fields) and additional document configurations.
The easiest way to start is enabling the DeveloperMode for a user. As developer (and power user) you can send envelopes via eSignAnywhere in the UI and download the complete envelope configuration (including the workstep configurations). So eSAW can be a seen as configuration designer, where you can easily prepare the envelope configuration. After you downloaded the configuration you just have to replace the recipient information and configuration.
