Session Class

GlobalSign Digital Signing Service

In this session, signatures can be created using different identities, i.e. signing certificates. Signing sessions and signing certificates expire after 10 minutes. After this time, they are renewed automatically.

When signing with this provider, these errors can occur:

  • PermissionException: If the account's quota is reached.
  • RetryException: If one of the account's rate limits is exceeded.

    The service enforces rate limits for both creating new identities and signing operations. So, if multiple documents must be signed at once, it is advisable to re-use the signature configuration (and hence its signing certificates) for signing.

  • HttpException: If a network error occurs or the service is not operational.
