Sending Document Out for Signing: Authentication Failed Message after Clicking Specify Where to Sign

New Here ,
Aug 04, 2021 Aug 04, 2021

Copied

We recently acquired two Acrobat Pro DC lincenses for users who need to send documents out for signing.  As the Team administrator, after doing the installation on each user's workstation, we did some testing.  After selecting the Send a Document out for Signing option, a form pops up as shown in the attached docuement.  After selecting the document to send for signing and selecting the email address of the users who need to sign the document, the next step is to click the "Specify Where to Sign" button.  Upon clicking this button an error message "Authentication Failed" appears in the lower left corner of the form.  The user is not allowed to proceed any further.

 

QUESTION:  What is the meaning of this "Authentication Failed" message?  And, what is the remedy for resolving this issue?  

 

Thank You,

Dale

After working with Adobe support, the fix for our issue was to delete and re-create the user in the Adobe Admin Center.

Hi all

 

I've just had this exact same problem and just wondered if there was any update on a solution? I don't really want to have to delete and recreate my user if possible.

This is an extremely urgent issue and is affecting company processes for me and other members of my team.

 

Thank you!

I have tried deleting and receating, still same problem. Adobe Support said they were manully provisioning the account on the back-end and it would fix it. It still isn't fixed, no response from them as to if they have provisioned it as yet. A lot of money to spend on a prodcut that doesnm't function. I have also noticed a lot more crashes in last few weeks when simply opening a PDF....

I am having exactly the same issue as decribed. This is affecting the way we do business and needs to be resolved. Has anyone heard anymore on getting this fixed or looked at switching to using other software to achieve the same result? We don't pay top dollars for an issue like this to be unresolved and with no response from support.

 

Thank you,

 

Steve

We are experiencing the same issue. We use it for all of our contracts and have a back log of clients wanting to sign. Can we have a fix or else we will need to use another application.

We also have the same issue. We tried deleting the user in question as the answer stated and after re-creating the user we still get Authentication failed when trying to request signature.

I had the same issue with one of our users. An additional symptom was, from the document cloud site https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/tools/?group=group-sign, under Sign a couple of the options that should have been available were missing, such as the "Create a Template" option. 

 

I tried logging the user out/in several times and checked all the apps under their account etc and everything looked correct.

 

As a last recourse before calling Adobe, I deleted the user from our list of accounts as mentioned by @patricks78989376 and recreated their account. The user then re-logged in using the business Google account and from that point forward everything has been working as expected. I have no explanation for it.

Hello,

 

I just ran into this issue and I wanted to advise of what worked for us. My user had a personal account that was using his company email. When signing in he would get the option to use "Personal" or the "Company" account. even though selecting company he would get the Authentication Failure. All of the other suggestions (Reinstall and delete account) did not resolve. He then had the idea to delete the company account, sign in to the personal and change the email associated to that account. We then created the company account again and the issue was resolved. I hope this helps for those still running into this issue.

Hello Guys, I found the reason that causes this issue, when you have a private account exact with the same email registered you need to change that email first and then add a security group for creating a federated account on AD, and in this case cause on Adobe site there is no more account with the same email it won't show you the Verification error message.
