Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into ONB Application 
  2. Pick up the affected candidate in ONB tab
  3. Notice the error message when using DocuSign Signature

See example:



Some forms are configured to Use DocuSign when form doesn't require signature.

See example:



  • Please be aware that including a form as part of the SIGNATURE package without Signature is generally a problem, as the form will appear in DocuSign, but DocuSign can't process it/ doesn't know what to do with it.
  • Reconfigure the form(s) and try processing the candidate again.
