Digital Signature app

Hi everyone, I am new to Next cloud. I wanted to know that is there an app or plugin in Next cloud that can enable users to Digitally sign a PDF or Word document? The app should be for non-tec guys.

Thanks in advance, I would really appreciate the responses even if my question is repeated. I have read FAQs and I am still unable to get the answer since I am a newbie.


As far as I know there is no app for this. That said as the files are stored on disk as files I use a few command line tools directly on folders in nextcloud with cron.

You could set up incron to detect changes in a “signing” folder and run what you need to on the file. Would be a pain to scale and depends on what PDF tools you could find

Hi Arsalan,

Is there a specific use case you have the code signing app in demand for? We have a similar requirement and are trying to build it as an app for our use case by linking it to an eternal signing provider.

Hi all!

We are actually building this functionality right now, about to be ready.

Would anyone with a Nextcloud + Signing need be willing to have a short chat to learn more about the exact needs-workflow?
