  1. Use the Login API to obtain an IdToken, which will need to be provided for subsequent API calls. The IdToken is good for 60 minutes.
  2. Identify the template file you want to use for the merge-request:

    If you want to use a template in Salesforce, access the Attached File for that template in Salesforce and copy its ID.

    If you want to use a local file as the template, use the Template Upload API method.

  3. Submit a merge request using the Merge Request API.
  4. Check the status of your merge request using the Merge Status API.
  5. Download the result file from your merge request using the Merge Result Download API.
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 for as many merge requests as you need until your IdToken expires, then perform step 1 again to get an updated IdToken.
