DocuSign Package Example

Follow an example that demonstrates how to configure the DocuSign package to integrate with the DocuSign eSignature platform.

Overview

Intended audience: Administrators, Process designers

Tags: DocuSign; Process design

This example demonstrates how to administer a DocuSign eSignature account with the DocuSign service. DocuSign eSignature provides a service to digitally sign legally-binding documents including contracts, account openings, and invoices.

Prerequisites

To use DocuSign eSignature with the DocuSign package, you require the following from the DocuSign platform:

  • a DocuSign eSignature account

  • at least one document template with at least one defined role from which to use with your document requiring signatures

  • a DocuSign app to manage authentication and integration with ProcessMaker Platform

ProcessMaker Platform does not provide a DocuSign eSignature account. However, this example describes how to design a DocuSign eSignature template and DocuSign app.

Overview of the Example

This example contains the following procedures in this order:

  1. Prepare the document for the DocuSign platform: From the DocuSign platform, upload your document, create a DocuSign template, and then add at least one role in that template. This template dictates which signers are required to sign this document. See Prepare the Document for the DocuSign Platform.

  2. Create a DocuSign app for this document: From the DocuSign platform, create a DocuSign app. Get both the DocuSign integration key and the generated secret key from the DocuSign platform, and then add the redirect URI for the callback after DocuSign authenticates a valid DocuSign app in ProcessMaker Platform. See Create a DocuSign App for This Document.

  3. Configure ProcessMaker Platform Settings with Your DocuSign App: From your ProcessMaker Platform instance settings, add the DocuSign app's integration and secret key acquired from the DocuSign platform. This step may require the assistance of an Administrator. See Configure ProcessMaker Settings with Your DocuSign App.

  4. Configure the DocuSign Connector for this Document: From your Process model, ensure that a DocuSign connector is in the Process to manage acquisition of the digital signatures for the document, and then configure that DocuSign connector. See Configure the DocuSign Connector for This Document.

Prepare the Document for the DocuSign Platform

Follow these guidelines to prepare your document for the DocuSign platform:

Upload Your Document to the DocuSign Platform

Follow these steps to prepare your document for the DocuSign platform as described in this example:

  1. Finalize your source document in its native format.

  2. Log on to DocuSign using your DocuSign account credentials. The Home menu displays in the DocuSign eSignature platform.

  3. Your document displays in the DocuSign platform.

  4. The Manage menu displays.

Create a DocuSign Template for This Document

A DocuSign eSignature template's purpose is to dictate the document signers (called "roles" in DocuSign) or for similar document types (such as non-disclosure agreements).

Follow these steps to create a DocuSign template for this document for this example:

  1. Click the Templates menu. The My Templates page displays.

  2. In the Template name setting, enter a name for this template. DocuSign shows this template name from the DocuSign connector. This example uses a template named Vendor Agreement.

  3. In the Template description setting, optionally enter a description for this template.

Add the Role(s) for This DocuSign Template

Roles in a DocuSign template specify the potential signers for any document that use that template. A role is a recipient for that document to sign or otherwise interact with that document.

Follow these steps to add the role(s) to the DocuSign template described in this example:

  1. Settings for that template display.

  2. Click the Add Recipient button that displays below the configured recipients for this template. Settings display to add a new recipient.

  3. In the Role setting, enter the name for this role. DocuSign shows this role when selecting this template from the DocuSign connector. This example uses one role named Vendor.

  4. Create one role for each signer required for your document. For example, create another role in this template called Customer for another signer in this document.

  5. Click the Save and Close button in the lower-right of the DocuSign platform. The Templates menu displays.

Create a DocuSign App for This Document

Follow these steps to configure your DocuSign account for this document as described in this example:

  1. Click Settings from the DocuSign eSignature platform. Settings for your account display.

  2. Select the Apps and Keys option in the Integration settings. The Apps and Keys page in the DocuSign eSignature platform displays.

  3. Locate the Apps and Integration Keys section below the My Account Information section.

  4. In the App Name setting, enter a name for this app's integration key.

    This example uses the name Vendor Onboarding.

  5. To edit an existing template, follow these steps:

    1. Locate the new app and its integration key in the Apps and Integration Keys section.

  6. In the General Info section, locate the Integration Key setting, and then copy it. Paste the app's integration key into a separate document for later reference.

  7. Click the Add Secret Key button below it. A new secret key generates. Copy this secret key and then paste it into the same document you placed the integration key for later reference.

  8. Click the Add URI button, and then enter the URL for the callback after DocuSign authenticates a valid DocuSign app in ProcessMaker Platform. Use the following format for this URI:

    https://<ProcessMakerPlatformURL>/docusign/authorization

    where <ProcessMakerPlatformURL> is the URL to your ProcessMaker Platform instance.

  9. Configure other settings for your DocuSign app as necessary. See DocuSign Developer App documentation for more information.

  10. Click Save.

Package Required

The DocuSign package must be installed.

Permissions Required

Your user account or group membership must have the following permissions to configure a DocuSign connector unless your user account has the Make this user a Super Admin setting selected:
