Q: What are the technical requirements?

JSON-Pure principles over HTTP POST keep the request content separate from the transmission mechanism, which results in an API that is simple and easy to use. All communication is done using SSL. OAuth2 is used for authentication and authorisation.

Q: How can I test the API?

You can test the SignHero API with Postman. Our Postman collection includes all the SignHero API requests. It usually takes 3-10 days to execute an integration, but it is highly dependent on final functionalities.

Q: Which authorisation grants does SignHero support?

Client Credentials - This grant is suitable for machine-to-machine authentication.
Authorisation Code - This grant obtains limited access to SignHero on the user’s behalf.

In both use cases you need to have a way to store secrets (Client ID & Password) in a secure way.
