Add Fields to Template

HTTP Request

PUT https://api.docspring.com/api/v1/templates/<TEMPLATE_ID>/add_fields

Parameters

The request body must be a JSON object with a fields property, where the value is an array of field objects. The only required properties are name, and page for PDF templates. (page must be omitted for HTML templates.)

Here is a minimal example:

{
  "fields": [
    {
      "name": "new_field",
      "page": 1
    }
  ]
}
  • Refer to the field object JSON schema to see all possible values for field properties.
  • See the default values for field properties. (If you do not specify a property, we will use the default value.)
  • DocSpring uses a numeric ID internally for each field. A new field ID will be assigned automatically if it is not provided.
  • The x, y, width, and height properties are optional. If coordinates are not provided, DocSpring will assign some default coordinates for each field and will increment the y position for each field.

Authentication

You must send an Authorization header with the value Basic followed by base 64 encoded token_id:token_secret.

For example: Authorization: Basic dG9rZW5faWQ6dG9rZW5fc2VjcmV0Cg==

See the Authentication documentation for more information.
