Request expiration

Request expiration

There are situations where you might need to set an expiration date for the signature request.

For example, imagine a quote for a service that is valid for 30 days. This proposal has to be signed by a certain date, and if not, the signature request for the quote is no longer valid.

All you need to do is pass the days_valid parameter.

For example:

cURL
curl --location 'https://api.box.com/2.0/sign_requests' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer ej...3t'
--data-raw '{
    "days_valid":30,
    "parent_folder": {
        "id": "234102987614",
        "type": "folder"
    },
    "source_files": [
        {
            "id": "1358047520478",
            "type": "file"
        }
    ],
    "signers": [
        {
            "email": "signer@example.com",
            "role": "signer"
        }
    ]
}'

        days_valid=days_valid,
    )

    return sign_request
