Multiple packages must be installed to implement the complete DocuSign solution. Packages for DocuSign must be installed in the order indicated in the table in this section. You begin with the Apttus base packages and then install the integration packages that enable the various products to function together. 

Apttus recommends downloading and upgrading Apttus packages in a Salesforce sandbox before installing them in your production environment. For information on installing and upgrading in a sandbox, please contact Apttus Support before you install any packages.

Install the packages in the following order.

The Apttus Base Library provides a shared library of reusable components that other Apttus packages may use. All CPQ and Contract Management customers must install this package in order to use Apttus CPQ and Contract Management products.

In addition, beginning in the Spring ’20 release, Apttus is adding a User Experience Analysis component that collects product usage data. No action is required on your part and there is no impact to any existing product features, system functionality, or configured workflows. No personally identifiable information (PII), nor any other proprietary, confidential, or sensitive data will be collected. If, during installation, you see an “Approve Third-Party Access” prompt, please select the Yes, grant access to these third-party web sites check box and click Continue. For more information, see DocuSign for Apttus on Salesforce Summer 2020 Release Notes.
