Acrobat Sign offers a plug-and-play integration solution with Microsoft Dynamics CRM that provides the following benefits:

  • Accelerates the quote-to-cash process by sending agreements, such as contracts and sales documents.
  • Automatically merges data from Dynamics entities (such as accounts and contacts) into agreements and pushes data gathered from signers during the signing process back to Dynamics.
  • Enables mobile functionality via the Sales Hub. This functionality is available only for installations on Dynamics 365 9.x and later.
  • Allows recipients to easily sign anywhere, anytime, and from any device.
  • Allow senders to track documents sent out for signature from within Dynamics.
  • Eliminates manual steps across the entire process.

Configure Acrobat Sign for Microsoft Dynamics 365

After installing the Acrobat Sign for Microsoft Dynamics 365 package, you must implement the following configuration settings:

When you install Acrobat Sign for Microsoft Dynamics 365 online for the first time, you must generate an Integration key in Acrobat Sign and enter it into Dynamics 365 online environment. The integration key is the access token that authenticates the Acrobat Sign and Dynamics environments to trust each other and share content.

To generate an Integration Key in Acrobat Sign:

  1. Log in to Microsoft Dynamics 365 using your admin account credentials.
    You admin account in Acrobat Sign holds the Integration Key.

  2. Navigate to Adobe Acrobat Sign > Home.

  3. From under the Integration Key field, select Go to Adobe Acrobat Sign to generate integration key.

  4. On the Acrobat Sign log-in page, log in using your admin credentials. 

    Your admin account email should be the same email address as your Dynamics admin.

  5. Navigate to Account > Acrobat Sign API > API Information. Next, select Integration Key.


    If you don't see the Integration Key link on your API Information page, contact Customer Support to modify your account settings to expose this required functionality.

  2. On the System Settings dialog, ensure that the Use legacy form rendering setting is set to No. Then, select Ok.

Every Dynamics user who is expected to use the Acrobat Sign application must have one of the following security roles configured in the Dynamics environment:

  • Acrobat Sign Reader – Allows the user read-only access to Agreement records.
  • Acrobat Sign User – Allows the user to work with Agreements and other application entities. This role permits the user to view only their records and allows User level access to built-in CRM records such as Contacts, Accounts, Leads, Opportunities, Orders, Invoices, and Quotes.
  • Acrobat Sign Administrator – This role includes additional privileges in addition to the Acrobat Sign User role, such as adjusting Global Settings, Data Migration, and allowing visibility over all Agreements throughout the application.

To configure the security roles:

  1. On the Dynamics 365 CRM page, select Settings > Security (under System).

  2. On the Security page that opens, select Users.

  3. On the Users page that opens:

    1. Select all the users you want to promote to one type of security role.
    2. From the top menu, select Manage Roles.
    3. From the Manage User Roles dialog that appears, select the checkbox for the desired security role.
    4. Select OK.

You can enable the 'Real-time automatic status updates' feature, which uses Acrobat Sign webhooks to trigger a Power Automate flow whenever an agreement status changes.

To enable real-time agreement status updates:

  1. On the Dynamics 365 page, select the app launcher from the top-right corner and then select Power Automate.


  2. On the Power Automate page that opens:

    1. From the left panel, select Connectors.
    2. In the Search connector bar, search for Adobe Acrobat Sign and then select Adobe Acrobat Sign from the list of available options.

    It adds the Adobe Acrobat Sign connector to your Power Automate list of connectors.


  3. From the left panel, select Templates and then use the search bar to find and add the Update Dynamics Agreement record on the agreement state change in Adobe Acrobat Sign.

  4. Authenticate to the following template services:

    • Common Data Service - This is the common data service in Dynamics. Admins can authenticate by selecting the + icon next to the service name.
      You must authenticate with your Dynamics admin user ID if you're not automatically authenticated.
    • Adobe Acrobat Sign - This opens the OAuth authentication to the Adobe Acrobat Sign service. Ensure that you authenticate with the same account-level admin email that was used to create the integration key.

    Once you successfully authenticate to the services, a green checkmark appears next to the authenticated service. Once done, select Continue.

  5. On the template details page that opens:

    1. Under the 'When the state of the agreement changes' section, in the Name field, enter the name of the trigger.
    2. Under the 'Update a record' section, select the correct environment (with Acrobat Sign installed).
    3. Select Save.


Implement custom settings (optional)

You can build templates, map data, and create custom workflows using the admin tools and configuration settings available on the Acrobat Sign Admin Settings page. 

To access and modify the settings:

  1. Navigate to Adobe Acrobat Sign > Admin Settings.

  2. On the Admin Settings page, access the required tools under the different tabs, as described in the following steps.

  3. Under Account and Setup, you can:

    • Access the Integration key for initial account setup.
    • Check the account setup status.
    • View the following account setup checklist:
      • Link Adobe Sign to Dynamics 365 – Shows a green checkmark when the Integration key is successfully installed.
      • Display Legacy Form Rendering in Dynamics 365 – Shows a green checkmark when Legacy Form Rendering is disabled.
      • Real-time automatic status updates with Power Automate – Shows a green checkmark when real-time updates are configured.


  4. Under Configuration, admins can enable or disable the following settings:

    • Enable user auto-provisioning – It automatically provisions all new users who are given access to the Adobe Acrobat Sign entity upon thier first use. Provisioning is based on the user's primary email address and not the username, and takes place in the background without further action by the user or account administrator.
      New users who are automatically provisioned in Acrobat Sign have a randomized password. Since the integration works as an authenticated application via API, there is no functional problem within the Dynamics environment. However, if the user wants to log in to Acrobat Sign, they must reset their password via the 'I forgot my password' link on the Acrobat Sign home page. 
    • Attach signed documents to agreements entity– It pushes a PDF copy of the completed document back into Dynamics, attached to the agreement record (under the Notes section). The authoritative original document is maintained on the Acrobat Sign servers.
    • Attach combined audit trail with signed agreement – It attaches the Acrobat Sign audit trail PDF to the agreement record (under the Notes section) once the agreement is signed and completed. The audit trail explicitly enumerates the events (viewed, signed, and delegated) of the agreement, the timeline of those events, and the IP address where the events were enacted.
    • Attach audit trail - It attaches the Audit report to the agreement record (under the Notes section) as a discrete file.
    • Display document preview images – It attaches an image of the signed or completed document to the record for easy viewing without having to download and open a PDF file. The attached image appears at the bottom of the agreement record.
    • Enable activity feeds on Adobe agreement entity - It enables activity feeds for the agreement entity.
    • Block Agreement Document Access - When enabled, it disallows a signed document copy from getting saved on Microsoft Dynamics and prevents users from previewing or downloading the copy from the Dynamics environment.

    When you enable the 'Block Agreement Document Access' setting:

    • It automatically disables the following settings:
      • Attach signed documents to agreements entity
      • Attach combined audit trail with signed agreement
      • Display document preview images
    • It does not change the status of the existing agreements. The setting is applied only to the agreements that are signed after the setting is enabled.
    • It does not delete the existing agreements from the Microsoft Dynamics environment.

To enable the required user-identity authentication methods in your Acrobat Sign account:  

  1. Log in to your Acrobat Sign account using your admin credentials.
  2. Navigate to Account > Account Settings > Send Settings.
  3. On the Send Settings page that opens, scroll down to the Signer Identification Options section and select the checkboxes for the identity authentication methods that you want to enable.
  4. Select Save.

Learn more about Acrobat Sign authentication methods.


If your work process requires you to have CFR 21 part 11 compliant signatures, you must configure the Bio-Pharma Settings in your Adobe Acrobat Sign account. To do so:

  1. Log in to your Acrobat Sign account using your admin credentials.
  2. Navigate to Account > Account Settings > Bio-Pharma Settings.
  3. On the Bio-Pharma Settings page, select the checkboxes for the settings that you want to enable.
  4. Select Save.

To learn more about the Bio-pharma settings, see Configure bio-pharma settings.


You can remove the current Integration Key from your Dynamics environment to break the trust relationship between Dynamics CRM and Adobe Acrobat Sign, thus stopping all new transactions and updates for existing transactions. Once the key is removed, it can be re-applied at any time to resume the interaction between the two systems.

To remove the key:

  1. Navigate Adobe Acrobat Sign > Admin Settings.
  2. From the top bar, select Remove Key.

You can also revoke the integration key from your Acrobat Sign account. Revoking the key permanently disables the key from usage in Acrobat Sign.

To revoke a key:

  1. Log in to your administrative user for your Adobe Acrobat Sign account.
  2. Navigate to Account > Personal Preferences > Access Tokens.
  3. Select the key definition for the Integration Key you want to revoke. It exposes the Revoke link.
  4. Select Revoke.
  5. When prompted, select Yes.

You can use Data Mapping to:

  • Improve your agreement generation process and ensure that documents have the correct content in the fields by pulling field values directly from Dynamics CRM.
  • Push new content from completed agreements back into Dynamics, allowing valuable updates to your CRM without engaging in manual data manipulation.  

For successful data mapping, you must have pre-built forms with defined field names to allow you to logically relate the CRM field to the Adobe Acrobat Sign form field. 

A simple form is illustrated below.  The fields are defined by the curly bracket pairs on either side (defining the width of the field) and the field name (the string of characters between the curly brackets). 

Example Form Fields

Text tags can include additional arguments beyond the name value, including validations, calculations, and regular expressions.

See how to build forms and improve the quality of data you capture during the signature process.

See how to build forms in PDF format.


The Text Tag Shortening feature can be very useful in form design and field mapping by establishing a convention for the field names that repeat on every document (and saves time by not having to re-create the formal tag). This expressly improves data mapping across multiple forms and builds an anchor for future forms.

To define a Data Mapping Template, you can use one of the two following ways:

  • Via the Data Mappings page
    1. Navigate to Adobe Acrobat Sign > Data Mapping.
    2. On the Data Mappings page, you can review, edit, or delete the existing data maps.
    3. From the upper-right corner, select +New to access the New Data Mapping page.
  • Via Admin Settings page
    1. On the Admin Settings page, select Create New Data Mapping.
    2. Enter an intuitive name for your data map.
    3. You may choose to set this data mapping as the default.
    4. From the Entity drop-down menu, select the CRM Entity.
      This constrains the fields available for mapping to just the defined entity. You can have multiple data maps per Entity. Once the entity value is set, it cannot be changed. Once the Entity value is set, it exposes the Data Mapping tab.
    5. Select Data Mapping to access the field mapping tools.


Relate the Dynamics CRM Data fields to the Acrobat Sign field names

You can create relationships between Dynamics CRM field names and the Acrobat Sign form field names you've defined. Data mappings are configured based on how the data flows:

  • MAP CRM DATA TO ADOBE ACROBAT SIGN AGREEMENT - Prefills fields on your form using field values associated with the defined Dynamics Entity.
    You can create a “hunt group” of alternate CRM field values seeking to fill the Acrobat Sign form field. Each group member is tried in order until a non-null value is found and inserted. (See Below)
  • MAP ADOBE ACROBAT SIGN AGREEMENT DATA TO CRM DATA - Populates the empty fields of the Dynamics Entity using form field values obtained through the signing process (once the agreement is completed).
    By default, Acrobat Sign does not push a new value into a CRM field with content.
    You can define the relationship on the data map to override the content protection and replace existing field values with new content from the signed form.

Supported Data Types

  • Adobe Acrobat Sign data mapping supports the following data types:
  • Text – Text form fields are supported as a single line of text in CRM.
  • Boolean (Two Option)– Checkboxes are supported for CRM Boolean fields.
    If drop-down or radio button form fields are used for Boolean CRM fields, the CRM to Acrobat Sign mapping may fail; however, Acrobat Sign to CRM mapping should work.
  • Option Set – Dropdown lists and radio button form fields are supported for CRM Option Set fields

To Relate CRM Data Fields to Acrobat Sign Agreement Fields:

  1. From the Attribute drop-down menu, select the CRM field.
  2. In the Agreement Field box, type the Adobe Acrobat Sign form field name.
  3. (Optional) Check the Add Reverse Direction Mapping box if you want to also relate these fields mapping from Acrobat Sign to CRM.
  4. (Optional) Check the Override box if you want this template to ignore existing content in the CRM field and force-populate the field with the new content from the Acrobat Sign field.
  5. Select Add.

Once the new field relation is processed, it appears under the configuration settings.  

If you added Reverse direction mapping, you see the new relationship populate under the Acrobat Sign to CRM configuration fields also. 

If you opted to Override the content protection, you see that indicated on the relationship record.

To Relate Acrobat Sign Agreement Fields to CRM Data Fields:

The process for discretely creating a mapping from Adobe to CRM is the same as above except there is no option to Add Reverse Direction Mapping.

To delete mapped relationships

You can delete one or more mapped relationships by:

  1. Select the records to be deleted by selecting the checkmark near the record.
  2. From the top bar, select the More commands icon and then select Delete.

To create Alternate field mapping relationships (Hunt Group)

If you define a field on an Adobe Acrobat Sign form that might be filled by one of several CRM fields, then you can create an ordered list (hunt group) of CRM attributes that will seek to populate the Adobe Acrobat Sign field.

For example, you may have the CRM field First Name mapped to a form field named FName, and then map the CRM field Yomi First Name to that same form field name. The application will first attempt to fill the field with content in the First Name field, and if no content is found, Adobe Acrobat Sign will attempt to use content in the Yomi First Name field.  If no content is found in any element of the hunt group, the field is left empty.

To define the hunt group:

  1. Create a CRM to Adobe Acrobat Sign relationship between your primary CRM attribute and the Acrobat Sign form field name.
  2. Once the first record is in place, change the CRM attribute to the secondary CRM attribute, and add that relationship. 
  3. When prompted, select OK.
  4. Once the record is updated in the system, you see that the records have changed to include a prefix in front of the Entity Attribute:

    # will be in front of the primary/default attribute. This field will always be the first field checked for content. Subsequent relations will be numbered 1-N. The first alternate field relationship is indicated by (1) and will always be the first alternate field checked.  (2) would be the second alternate field, and so on. 

Hunt Group

To add attachments to related Entities

Once an agreement is fully signed and executed, Adobe Acrobat Sign will produce a PDF copy of the document and an audit trail of the signing process.  It is possible to have these documents attached as PDF files to any other CRM Entity that is related to the template’s parent Entity.

In the MAP SIGNED AGREEMENT AND AUDIT TRAIL TO CRM ENTITY section of the template page, you will find three Document Types available via drop-down:

  • Signed PDF – The full text of the signed document. This is a copy of the authoritative original that is maintained on the Acrobat Sign servers.
  • Audit Trail – A full enumeration of all major events (signing, delegation, etc.) and the associated metadata (time/date, IP address, etc.)
  • Combined PDF - Both documents are combined in one PDF and attached

You can attach one or more files to any related Entity, but you must explicitly map them individually.

To map an attachment:

  1. Select the Document Type you want from the drop-down
  2. Select the Entity you want to push the document to, using the Attach to CRM Record drop-down list. Only Entities with a defined relationship to the parent Entity will be listed
  3. Select Add.

Attachment relationships will be listed under the configuration settings.

Entity options drop down

To Delete an Attachment

  1. Select the check mark for the records that you want to delete.
  2. Select the More commands icon and then select Delete.

As an Acrobat Sign Admin in the Dynamics environment, you have the authority to create agreement templates that can pre-configure a majority of the agreement fields, attach files, and tie that agreement to relevant data mapping.

Templates are tied to a Dynamics entity, and become available for agreements sent from that entity when they are flagged as Active.


Data Maps are at the core of Agreement Templates and should be defined before the Agreement Template is configured. 

Use one of the following ways to configure a new Agreement Template:

Via Agreement Templates

  1. Go to Adobe Acrobat Sign > Agreement Templates.
  2. It loads the Agreement Templates page, which will list all the existing templates for you to review, edit, or delete.
  3. From the upper-right corner, select +New to start a new template.

Via Admin Settings 

  1. From the left panel, select Admin Settings.
  2. Select the Configuration tab and then select Create new agreement template.
  3. On the New Agreement Template page, provide an intuitive name for the template and select the Entity that the template should be tied with.

Note: The Entity cannot be changed later. Once the Entity is selected, the template is saved, and the full agreement template loads.


You can configure the Agreement Template by providing the required information under the following four tabs:

  • Template Details – Defines the relationship between the major objects and if the template is active.
  • Recipients – Allows for a pre-configured signature path for the template.
  • Agreement Details – Contains the elements of the individual agreement.
  • Related – A listing of related objects.

Template Details

The template details show the Template - Entity - Data Map relationship for this template. It contains the following fields:

  • Template Name: The name of the template. This is identical to the name expressed at the top of the page.
  • Primary Entity: Templates are tied to a single entity within Dynamics. The declared entity is the only entity that will display this template. This value is locked once the agreement is created.
  • Data Mapping: This field indicates the name of the Data Map that is bound to the template.
  • Active: It dictates if the template is available for users to select when sending from the primary entity.
  • One-click send: If enabled, the template automatically sends the agreement when the template is selected.
    Suppose that you've an NDA template designed with Contact as the primary entity, and the recipient's section is configured to import the Contact’s email. Then, you only need to select the NDA template from the Contact they intend to send it to. The configuration phase is skipped, and the agreement is sent without further interaction.
    But if no recipient is configured, One-click is ignored, and the agreement opens for manual configuration.
Template details


The Recipients section contains the list and signing order of recipients that you want to pre-configure for the template.

Recipient list

You can fix a recipient list within a template using the + New Recipient option. By default, the recipient list is left empty for the Sender to manually populate when configuring an agreement.

You must add a default recipient explicitly via + New Recipient option and then save the default values presented with Create from primary entity enabled.

The Override Default Verification option allows you to escape the default verification method (set in the Security section) and apply a different verification method for just this recipient.

Quick Recipient - Override Auth

To add additional recipients (for an internal counter-signature process for example) or recipients that aren’t involved in the signature process, you must deselect Create from primary entity checkbox and then define the recipient. It is an excellent option for CCing teams that only need to manage the final documents.

Additional recipients

Agreement Details

The  Agreement Details section contains four sections:

  • Message Details: The agreement name and the global message that each recipient sees on the "Please Sign" email.
  • Attached Files: The files that are sent for signature.
  • Agreement Options: Options for configuring the agreement.
  • Security Options: The option to secure the PDF with a password.

Add Custom CRM Entities to Acrobat Sign

You can associate your agreements with the following built-in CRM entities included in the Adobe Acrobat Sign package:

  • Contacts
  • Accounts
  • Leads
  • Opportunities
  • Quotes
  • Invoices
  • Orders
  • Contracts

Custom entities can only start an agreement from the Request Signatures menu item. You cannot use the Quick Create system to start an agreement from a custom entity.

You can add your custom CRM entity or any other built-in CRM entity to this scope using simple steps, as explained in the following steps. The example setup explains how to add a custom CRM entity called 'Customer.'

  1. Navigate to Settings > Customization.

  2. On the Customization page, select Customize the System.


  3. On the Default Solution page that opens:

    1. In the left panel under Components, expand the Entities list.
    2. Find the custom entity 'Customer' (in this case) and expand it.
