I have a template I created from the eSign dashboard. I’m trying to change the document’s id through the update document PUT request. I get a successful response that shows the new document id I set. The change isn’t reflected when I make another GET request to that package, however – the document id is still the default assigned by eSign Live.
Am I missing something? If not through this method, how can I replace the document id?
I’m not certain you can change the ID once it has been created. You might just be getting a successful return because it’s ignoring your changed value because it can’t be done, so it doesn’t even look at that property. Could you use the API to create your template and set the document ID from the beginning instead of using the UI? You could even use the payload from the existing template to create it exactly as you did in the UI (only switch the id for the documents when you make the POST request to create the template).
