|Identifies who signed a particular form.
Table 1. signer parameter
<signer>identity of user</signer>
|Identity of user||string||identity of user|
Available in button, signature
Example In this example, signer is similar to a user's e-mail signature, clearly identifying who signed the form.
<signer>John Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org</signer>
- The setting of the signer option varies, depending on the signing engine used:
Table 2. signature engine parameters for the signer option
|signing Engine||signer Setting|
|Generic RSA||common name, e-mail|
|CryptoAPI||common name, e-mail|
|Netscape||common name, e-mail|
|Entrust||signer's login identity|
|CIC||signer's name as entered during signing ceremony|
|HMAC Clickwrap||the value of the answer indicated by the HMACsigner tag in the signformat option
Note that if the HMACsigner tag includes more than one answer, they are combined in a comma delimited list. For example, "answer1, answer2".|
- The signer option is automatically generated by the signature button when the user signs the form. It is added to both the signature button code and the signature code. No manual coding is required.
