Step 3

​Receive status from application

The return URL provided as an input parameter is used in the following scenarios:

1. Once the user completes the signing process, a button with value "Fullfør" is displayed to the user. Upon clicking this button, the user will be directed to the return URL with status "OK".

2. If the user cancels the process, the user is directed to the return URL with status "Cancel".

3. If the signing process cannot be completed due to error, the user is directed to the return URL with status "Error".

A "status" parameter is added to the URL in all the above cases and may have the following values:

​Description Values​
​Agreement is signed and will be established ​OK
​Agreement signing has been interupted by the customer ​Cancel
