Legalesign, a provider of esignature services that are aimed at enterprise businesses, has launched a new API: Legalesign Firehose. This new real-time events API provides developers with esignature integration capabilities and implements OAuth 2.0.
The company intends the API to enable the development of custom dashboards that display information pertaining to when documents are “created, emailed, viewed and signed, when any group activity happens, or even while a signatory is reading their document.” Legalesign noted that they implemented WebSockets to ensure that data is accurate in real-time:
“Firehose is a long-lived WebSocket connection and sends back all the information going on in a Legalesign group, as it happens.”
The API is currently available in preview, meaning that interested developers will need to contact the company about availability.
