Administrator's Guide


Review the Signer Guide and set up your own account and validation before performing the processes listed here.

This guide includes instructions for administering DigiCert​​®​​ Document Trust Manager to validate signers and create signing credentials for your organization.

  • Create a validation

    Validation is the process of confirming that you are who you say you are. If you have followed the instructions in the signer guide, you should already have gone through this process yourself. This guide will show you how to initiate the process for someone else. Also in this section:

  • Create a signup link

    A signup link makes it easier for you to invite signers and get the validation process started.

  • Create a credential

    The DigiCert​​®​​ Document Trust Manager credential combines a person's validated identity with a digital certificate. This is the proof that lies behind a secure signature in Document Signing Manager.

  • Add a signing provider

    This setting designates the signing engine (for example, DigiCert ONE® DigiCert​​®​​ Document Trust Manager) that will provide the software backing for your credentials.

  • View audit logs

    Audit logs are a history of actions in DigiCert​​®​​ Document Trust Manager, providing an overview of the status of your validations, signatures, and signup links.
