This tutorial explains how to send signature requests for your documents using our eSignature API (Application Programming Interface).
Send Out Documents for Signing
The most simple case is when you need to send out a document for signing without specifying any fields. In this case the signer or the signers will be able to sign your document where they feel it should be done.
Please note that if you want to send a signature request from your command line using CURL, you would need to upload your document to DigiSigner first. We will show how to do it in our first code sample, but later we will skip this step each time. The upload request will return the document_id parameter of the uploaded document, which you will use as an input parameter in the signature request.
This doesn’t apply if you are using our PHP or Java client libraries. Then you will only need to perform one API call, which will automatically upload your document and send the signature request for you.
In the following code sample we demonstrate how to send such a signature request.
