You can now merge PDF documents automatically, to save many person-hours, and increase productivity. We thought that maybe a good thing for your organization, which is why we created a tool that uses API to merge PDF files. Our code to merge PDF files is easy to use, and you can incorporate it in your website, or other in-house document management software.
Key Benefits of Using Our PDF file Merger
Merge Large Files
You can merge large files easily in a matter of seconds. Most end-user PDF merging applications will slow your machine, if you open two or more large PDF files, and try to merge them.
Our API tool allows you to select large files and merge them automatically. However, you will need to upload them to temporary storage, before you execute the merging operation.
Choose Pages to Merge
Our API tool allows you to select the individual pages or a range of pages you want to be included in the merged PDF. You can also choose to merge entire PDF documents. Overall, that gives you greater flexibility on how you merge your PDFs.
Privacy has become a big legal issue, and there are laws that require those handling protected private data, to encrypt it, when transmitting or storing it. Our API merging tool allows you to encrypt the merged output file.
To encrypt the output file, set “encrypt” as “true”. In that regard, our PDF merging tool helps you to comply with privacy laws. It also protects your business from lawsuits and government fines.
Asynchronously Merge Large PDF Files
The tool’s code to merge PDF files can run asynchronously, to avoid timeouts. Users can merge documents in the background, and download them without having to refresh their browsers.
You can enable “async” mode. the “async” input parameter should be set to “true”. We recommend you do that for large or multiple files. You can then use “/job/check” to check the final status of the background process. Once complete, it will return the status as “success”.
Steps to Execute Background Jobs and Asynchronous Modes
Step 1: Request URL
Use “file/upload/get-presigned-url” to get a “presignedUrl” and “url”. You will use “presignedUrl” to upload your file, and “url” to access the uploaded file.
Step 2: Upload URL
Use “PUT” to upload files to “presignedUrl”, and “url” to access the uploaded file.
Step 3: Call API Method
You can now call the API method with the input set as “url”, and “async” set to “true”, for the API method to return an output URL or URLs immediately.
The API method will also return a unique “jobId” that identifies the merging job you initiated.
Step 4: Check Job Status
Use /job/check API method with jobId param to check the execution status of your job you initiated.
Step 5: Download Merged File
Once the merging process is completed, the “/job/check API method with jobId param” will return “status” param as “success”. Download your merged files using the output URL/s in “Step 3”.
