Import/Export Electronic Signature Appearances

We provide 2 data entities to support import/export of Electronic signature appearances through the Data Management framework. These are:

  • Docentric Electronic signature appearance groups,
  • Docentric Electronic signature appearance.

Data entities need to be used in the same order as listed above, because Electronic signature appearances depend on Electronic signature appearance groups.


For import/export purposes we recommend using the XML-Element data format.

Please note that Signature image must be converted into a string during the export process, and the opposite is done during the import. Due to the D365FO import process limitation, any string longer than 32K will be truncated, thus resulting in import error.

In case you have a situation like that, we suggest that you use smaller signature images or temporarily remove them prior to export.
