This API merges multiple documents using the values specified in the docIds parameter into a single PDF document with the name docFileName. This API enhances mergeDocsToPDF by providing the ability to automatically display or hide the footer in the merged PDF.

Before invoking this API, CustomClass.ActionParams must be instantiated by passing the parameters described below. The parameters are then passed to the API when it is invoked.
