Webhook-PHP recipe

This directory includes the source for the PHP Webhook recipe example and enables it to be run on a free Heroku or Microsoft Azure App Service server.

The /web directory holds the complete example including assets, sample documents, etc.

The top level files are used to manage and configure the example on the Heroku or MS Azure platforms.

Run the recipe on Heroku

The recipe source can be run on Heroku using the free service level. No credit card needed!


Click the Deploy button, then enter your DocuSign Developer Sandbox credentials on the form in the Heroku dashboard. Then press the View button at the bottom of the dashboard screen when it is enabled by the dashboard.

Run the recipe on your own server

Get Ready

Your server needs PHP 5.5 or later.

Your server must have an address that is visible and accessible from the public internet. Unless that is the case, the DocuSign platform will not be able to post the notification messages to your server.

You need an email address and password registered with the free DocuSign Developer Sandbox system. You also need a free Integration Key for your DocuSign account. See the DocuSign Developer Center to sign up.

How to do it

Make the /web directory available on your web server and navigate to /web/index.php from a JavaScript enabled browser.

Run the recipe on MS Azure

The recipe source, as is, works on the MS Azure App Service using the free service level. No credit card needed!

Please see the instructions on the recipe page on the DocuSign DevCenter for running the example MS Azure
