Create Unclaimed Draft

Creates a new Draft that can be claimed using the claim URL


In order to claim the url you must have a verified active HelloSign Account. This is not an embedded claim url, you cannot use the following example How to Open an Embedded Claim URL.


The first authenticated user to access the URL will claim the Draft and will be shown either the "Sign and send" or the "Request signature" page with the Draft loaded. Subsequent access to the claim URL will result in a 404.

Class: HelloSign.SignatureRequestService

Return type: HelloSign.ServiceObjects.UnclaimedDraftResponse



Acceptable Parameters

originObjectIdIdSet this if you want your HelloSignSignature_Request_c record to populate the RelatedObject_Id_c field. We will also attempt to populate the lookup field, Account__c for example if the Id is a Supported Object
fileIdsList<Id>Accepted Id types are ContentDocument, Attachment, or Document.

Cannot use file_url when this is set
file_urlList<String>Cannot use fileIds when this is set
type_xStringThe type of unclaimed draft to create. Use "send_document" to create a claimable file, and "request_signature" for a claimable signature request. If the type is "request_signature" then signers name and email_address are not optional.
signersMap<String, HelloSign.ServiceObjects.Signer>The list of recipients who will be required to sign.
test_modeBooleanThe signature request will not be legally binding when set to true.
subjectStringThe subject in the email that will be sent to the signers.

attachmentsMap<Integer, HelloSign.ServiceObjects.Attachment_x>List of Attachments for each signer to upload.
custom_fieldsList<HelloSign.ServiceObjects.CustomField>Editable custom_fields are only supported for single signer requests or the first signer of ordered signature requests. If more than one signer is assigned to the unordered signature request, any editor value is ignored and the field will not be editable.

signing_redirect_urlStringThe URL you want signers redirected to after they successfully sign.
use_text_tagsBooleanPlease see Text Tags Syntax on how to use text tags.

we only support use of either use_text_tags or use_preexisting_fields parameter, not both.
hide_text_tagsBooleanWhen using Text Tags it is preferred that you set this to false and hide your tags with white text or something similar because the automatic removal system can cause unwanted clipping.

field_optionsHelloSign.ServiceObjects.FieldOptionsThis allows the requester to specify field options for a signature request.
