Introduction

GroupDocs.Signature Cloud offers an ability to find Digital signatures that are applied to document and returns its digital signature certificate.

API Usage

There are steps that usage of GroupDocs.Signature Cloud consists of:

  1. Upload input document into cloud storage
  2. Search signatures

For storage operations, like uploading or downloading documents, please refer to the corresponding articles of this manual.

Swagger UI lets you call this REST API directly from the browser.

SDKs

The API is completely independent of your operating system, database system or development language. We provide and support API SDKs in many development languages in order to make it even easier to integrate. You can see our available SDKs list here.
