Signing link

Signing link - a single-use link to a document that requires a signature. When the document is signed (or the signer declines to sign it), the link is no longer valid.

Keep in mind that you should get the document ID first before generating a link. Save it from a POST /document or GET /user/documents request.

This request returns 2 links:
"url" - having followed this link, the Signer is asked to log in to their SignNow account;
"url_no_signup" - document is accessible to anyone with the link.
