[Updated] Adobe Acrobat Sign updated Webhooks framework (Webhooks 2.0) 

First Reported: October 2022 - Updated: February 2023


On November 8th, 2022, Acrobat Sign delivered an improved version of webhooks infrastructure (referred to as “webhooks 2.0”).

  • New customer accounts created after November 8th, 2022, are automatically built with webhooks 2.0 enabled.
  • The Sandbox environment will be updated on March 9th, 2023.
  • Accounts existing before November 9th, 2022, are to be migrated to the webhook 2.0 environment after the March 14th, 2023 release.
  • On July 18th, 2023, Acrobat Sign will sunset the current webhooks infrastructure (referred to as “classic webhooks”).

Webhooks 2.0 supports all the features of classic webhooks with one caveat. Classic webhooks configured for the user, their group, or their account, delivered notifications to all participants of an agreement. In webhooks 2.0, ONLY webhooks configured for the sender, sender’s group or account will receive notifications. In other words, notifications are no longer sent to all participants of an agreement.

Note that all future webhook enhancements will ONLY be delivered on webhooks 2.0.   

Current customers can try webhooks 2.0 on a Trial, Developer, or Sandbox account via Adobe’s Insider Access program starting November 8th. 

The migration is expected to be seamless for all customers. However, customers who have strict network security policies in place will require new IP addresses to be configured in accordance with

If you have any questions, reach out to your success manager or the support team.

First Reported: March 2023


Coming soon to Acrobat Sign for Teams: Conveniently send Teams and OneDrive files for signature directly from the application.

Consenting to the permissions for the Documents tab enables those features for all users in the organization. There are two options:

Direct link

As an administrator, open Microsoft Teams and install the Adobe Acrobat Sign application if it is not already installed.

Navigate to the Documents tab, where a dialog automatically appears:

Application usage by admin

Selecting Next opens a new window allowing the administrator to authenticate with their Microsoft account and consent to the permissions. (This is functionally identical to following the link above in option 1.)

Selecting Cancel returns the user to the Home tab.

Consenting to the Documents Tab Set of Permissions for Individuals

For organizations that rely on individuals to manage their own permissions, Acrobat Sign for Teams users must consent to the new permissions when they navigate to the Documents tab, where a dialog automatically appears:

Use of the public key

  • If you have custom-built integrations with Acrobat Sign using either the SOAP or REST APIs, and if any of these integrations have ‘pinned’ the existing public key, no action is required.
  • If you are using Acrobat Sign’s SSL certificates for SSO, or if you’re pinning the certificate itself (or using other methods), you can find the new Acrobat Sign certificates in the Adobe Acrobat Sign System Requirements.

    • If your SSO does not support multiple public certs/chains, you will need to sync your SSL switch with Acrobat Sign on March 1st, 2023.
