asynccallRequestIdIDThe ID of the asynchronous merge call SObject.

Code Sample

The sample code below enables you to create a proposal document asynchronously for a proposal with a large number of line items, by providing a valid proposal ID, template name, protection level, format, draft state. After the execution, it returns the ID of the asynchronous merge call SObject.

 * The below method demonstrates how to create draft or final proposal document asynchronously by passing the proposal ID(auto generated ID as record name),
 * template name, protection level, document format and isDraft indicator.
 * Possible protection levels are: 
 *  - Full access,
 *  - Insert comments and tracked changes only, 
 *  - Insert comments only, 
 *  - Fill in form fields only and
 *  - Read only
