Identify your use case

What type of integration you are developing?

There are two kinds of apps or integrations that are possible with SignEasy, based on the number of SignEasy accounts who will use your app.

1. Single User App

A single user app or integration usually has only one SignEasy account being used and different users sign or send documents via that one account.

You would be building a single user app if:

  1. You are using Embedded Signing, to get your own users to sign documents on your website or mobile app.
  2. You want to hold all data and documents in a single SignEasy account.
  3. You want to use a single SignEasy account throughout your organization.

If you are building a single user application, go here to see how to generate API keys and authenticate your APIs.

2. Multi User App

A multi-user app or integration has multiple SignEasy account holders using your app to manage or use SignEasy on your platform.

You would be building a multi-user app, if

  1. You are building a SignEasy integration on a CRM like Salesforce, Quickbooks or Xero.
  2. You want to different team members in the organization to have their own SignEasy accounts, and they manage and send documents for signature themselves.
  3. You want to sandbox user data & documents into individual accounts.

If multiple SignEasy account holders would be using your integration/app, you would have to use oAuth for API authentication to seek each of the account holder's permission to run APIs on their behalf.
