API and Application

Resources Sandbox Production
API: api-eval.signnow.com:443 api.signnow.com:443
Application: https://app-eval.signnow.com https://app.signnow.com
Entry page: https://eval.signnow.com

Installation

@signnow/api-client supports node.js v6.4.0 or later.

To install the latest version of @signnow/api-client run:

npm install @signnow/api-client

Documentation

See API reference in our Documentation.

Examples

To run the examples you will need an API key. You can get one here https://www.signnow.com/api. For a full list of accepted parameters, refer to the SignNow REST Endpoints API guide: https://docs.signnow.com.

Every resource is accessed via your api client instance:

const api = require('@signnow/api-client')({
  credentials: 'ENCODED_CLIENT_CREDENTIALS',
  production: false, // if false uses eval server
});

Every resource returns two parameters. The first param contains any errors and the second contains the results.

Webhook

Returns a list of Webhooks

signnow.webhook.list({
  token: 'your auth token',
}, (err, res) => {
  // handle error or process response data
});

Create a Webhook

Events Description
document.create Webhook is triggered when a document is uploaded to users account in SignNow
document.update Webhook is triggered when a document is updated (fields added, text added, signature added, etc.)
document.delete Webhook is triggered when a document is deleted from
invite.create Webhook is triggered when an invitation to a SignNow document is created.
invite.update Webhook is triggered when an invite to SignNow document is updated. Ex. A signer has signed the document.
api.webhook.create({
  token: 'your auth token',
  event: 'document.create',
  callback_url: 'http://www.domain.com/path',
}, (err, res) => {
  // handle error or process response data
});

Promisify methods

If you are using node.js version 8.0.0 or higher you can use built in promisify utility:

const { promisify } = require('util');
const api = require('@signnow/api-client')({
  credentials: 'ENCODED_CLIENT_CREDENTIALS',
  production: false, // if false uses eval server
});
const requestToken = promisify(api.oauth2.requestToken);

requestToken({
  username: 'username',
  password: 'password',
})
  .then(res => {
    // process response data
  })
  .catch(err => {
    // handle error
  });

If you are using node.js version prior to 8.0.0 you can use our own simple promisify utility:

const { promisify } = require('@signnow/api-client/utils');
const api = require('@signnow/api-client')({
  credentials: 'ENCODED_CLIENT_CREDENTIALS',
  production: false, // if false uses eval server
});
const requestToken = promisify(api.oauth2.requestToken);

requestToken({
  username: 'username',
  password: 'password',
})
  .then(res => {
    // process response data
  })
  .catch(err => {
    // handle error
  });

Unit Tests

To run the unit test you will need to install "Mocha" and "Chai". You also need to edit a test.settings.js in the test folder of the api client module. The file need to contain the following:

exports.settings = {
  credentials: '[ENCODED CLIENT CREDENTIALS]',
  token: '[ACCESS TOKEN]',
  username: '[SIGNNOW USERNAME]',
  password: '[SIGNNOW PASSWORD]',
  documentid: '[EXISTING DOCUMENT ID]',
  templateid: '[EXISTING TEMPLATE ID]',
  folderid: '[EXISTING FOLDER ID]',
  email: '[FROM EMAIL FOR INVITE]',
  testemail: '[TO EMAIL FOR INVITE]',
};
