New realease Ide: Xpath for signers placing.

0 votes


Hi there!!!.

We are working with automations with OS.... and how to handle some scenarios where we need to define where to place the “signature” using a fixed position .


Usually,  we have several templates with different positions for the signers…


But is we want to have the freedom to get the position according to another definition , it gets tricky



It would be useful if the document to be signed would also have kind of “relative path tags” in all the document. 

Like a Matrix , over de document.  So we can also automate, using a RPA with xpath to place the signatures..


Im not sure I mas idea is clearly explained…

Hi Daniel,


If you meant to use XPath to locate signature, unfortunately, the OneSpan Sign system doesn't support it right now. But you got other methods to automatically place the signatures and fields:

Text Anchor - Text anchors allow you to position a field or signature based on the text in your document.

Text Tag Extraction - OneSpan Sign will analyze the uploaded document, and replace every text that matches the Text Tag pattern (e.g. {{esl:Signer1:signature:size(200,50)}}) with the appropriate signature or field.

Position Extraction - By placing PDF form fields, position extraction feature ensures that the exact position and size of a field or signature in an uploaded PDF file are automatically retained in OneSpan Sign.

Document Extraction - Similar to position extraction, but if you name the PDF forms in a certian pattern (e.g. [Signer1.Capture1]), you don't have to bind the role and specify the signature type in the JSON.
