Electronic signatures

Electronic signatures consist of a username and password. In the case of a review, a moderator can require electronic signatures to show that a particular person in a particular role approves of the review. Electronic signatures can also be added to baselines.

Signatures are captured with a time/date stamp and an audit trail tying the signature to the individual user and baseline or reviews where the signature was added.

Review moderators have the option to require a signature for a review and to add a signer role. All review signatures carry the signature meaning, "I approve this review."

Electronic signatures, time stamps, signer roles and signature meaning are all visible in review activity.


You cannot delete a review that has an electronic signature, or a baseline created from a review that has an electronic signature.


Electronic signatures depend on the authentication system your organization is using. Authentication properties can be configured by a system administrator.
