Using text tags without knowing exact signers of documentWednesday, April 12, 2023 at 01:48pm
We are using the .NET SDK to setup transactions with documents containing only signature fields. We are using Text Tag extraction as our signature locator and I attached the code we are using to do this.
This works great for all of our current use cases. Going forward, however, we will be sending documents where we will not be able to populate the document roles (as we do in that code snippet) with the correct signer roles involved. For example, we might have a transaction with (2) signers and a document which may or may not have a text tag for each of them (we are a middleman system here).
We tried a test case using the code you see where we sent in a single document with a valid text tag for signer "s1" but no text tag for "s2". We then set the document roles to contain both "s1" and "s2" (see code). However, this fails and results in OneSpan responding that there are no approvals for signer "s2" on the document. Repeating this test with a document which has text tags for both "s1" and "s2" shows that both signers are able to sign as expected.
My question: Is there some way we can instruct OneSpan to automatically map all signers to their respective text tags and to not error when a signer has no approval on a particular document?
For reference, I found these somewhat related posts which refer to the automatic nature of text tag extraction:
