Sterling B2B Integrator - Create a Signatory

After configuring the contract and user permission, you can configure the designated list of signatories to be associated with the order type or file format in the contract. When configuring the contract, if you have specified the number of signatures required to authorize an order to a value greater than 0, you must configure the signatory.

Signatory configuration allows you to add, edit, and delete signatures for each order type of file format associated with the contract. The Signatory Configuration page enables you to add signatories for a specific bank, offer, or a partner. Use this page to configure signatories of the contract.
