Add electronic signature to a baseline

Adding an electronic signature lets users see items that are approved or revoked. For example, if you want to sign and approve a review.

Things to know

  • Baselines with an electronic signature appear in the baseline tree with a blue dot and white exclamation mark for easy identification.

  • You can add a signer role or a reason for signing to a review signature, but not to a baseline signature.

  • Signatures are enabled by default, but can be disabled by a system administrator.

  • Self-hosted customers can't edit a baseline that is signed, whether manually or in a review.

  • Hosted customers with project or organization administrator permissions can edit only the name and description of a baseline that is signed, manually or in a review.

  1. In the Explorer Tree, under the Baselines tab, select the baseline you want to sign, then select View details.

  3. In the Electronic signature window, enter your username, password, and any optional comments, then select Save. Username and password must match that of the logged in user.

    Window shows name, signature date and fields for username, password and comments.

    If your organization is using SAML for authentication, you are asked to select Sign baseline, then enter your username and password to authenticate your signature.

  4. (Optional) Select Revoke to cancel your signature. Only the user who signed the baseline can remove their signature. When revoking a signature, you can leave a reason for revoking, which appears in the activity stream as a comment.
