Is it possible to implement Adobe Sign with Onboarding for remove signature (eSignature)?


SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding


There are only two eSignature methods that are used in Onboarding:

  • Embedded signature: The embedded signature functionality is an in-house application of SAP SuccessFactors for e-Signatures. It’s supported by SAP SuccessFactors eSignature. Using this functionality, users can sign documents from within the Onboarding instance. 

  • Remote signature: This functionality is supported by DocuSign. With the Remote signature support, you can sign documents directly in DocuSign, using a web browser or a mobile device. Whenever a signature is required, you receive an email with a URL and instructions on how to sign the forms. Click on the URL, to sign the document.


We only support DocuSign for remote signature. Currently, Adobe Sign is not supported.
