Digital Signatures Directly in Vault

Status: Accepted
by Distinguished Contributor obourne on ‎08-20-2012 10:52 AM

There should be a way to create digital signatures from within Vault that would write directly to the drawing files. Currently if I want a "legal" signature I need to print a hard copy to sign which then becomes the legal copy on file (not the DWG) or I need to publish a PDF and use Verisign which then means the PDF becaomes the legal copy.


It makes sense to me to have all this done directly from Vault (ideally PLM 360 as well).


This is a very important point for regulated industries i.e. FAA, FDA etc.

Hi obourne, is the DWG made from Inventor or AutoCAD?

A verificated Sign-off method would be very appreciated. When a file/item gets released by an user then the system must verify the user again by showing an extra sign off dialog where the user has to fill in its user credentials.

The workflow would be:

Login Vault > use credentials

Releasing a file / item > use credentials again.

Then the job processor generates the visualization file automatically (in pdf format).


Of course should this be a option which is controlled by the admin.

This is what I was asking for in the following Discussion topic:


This is something that I think everybody needs and should be built into the release work flow.
