Thank you for contacting Aspose Support.

If we understood your question properly, you would like to insert an external link to a PDF document during Mail Merge. Insert HTML During Mail Merge article will help you in this regard.

Following cURL example inserts an external link to a PDF document in the template document:

// First get Access Token
// Get App Key and App SID from https://dashboard.aspose.cloud/
curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/oauth2/token" \
-X POST \
-d 'grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=0B17F60A-6D69-426B-9ABD-79F35A6E9F7B&client_secret=53b8b19adffa41a3e87dbbd8858977ae' \
-H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
-H "Accept: application/json"
  
// cURL example to populate Mustache Template with HTML Data
curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/v1.1/words/SampleDocTemplate_Input.docx/executeTemplate?destFileName=TestPostExecuteTemplate.docx" \
-X POST \
-T TestExecuteTemplateData.txt \
-H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data" \
-H "Accept: application/json" \
-H "Authorization: Bearer pilSfz7IlWT4zTmvpE3qztUN9MsVn2g5lRDoacx1ngr2jklNTQL6EiGMpp2wawwJlX5CDV2MTAk_nxAAhdOdlRSMUauYXFiCFTclMT-3EP-dPsZqxzKVsKbVmXmu1r64cizsng2X0tc_rPJDrG8t6MlZwcA2DuJDwmooIBF5hOpKWEgnSNCpehOy17vg4R11p6dQlo2gFcLtTIahX1Zjbb6Hrik9-ev9NbJ7MXB8QVl_G6gfYoqUYzYFq8TxwQUWIvLCLkju5uhiVuThLkoZGzMeVhSsgWmXa5Kb-W9bA4Ls1yI9p82jrYWHWEIkxKqjomzWqNEIO6ANz7XVdb4Z3ecjhYg9U9u45Q6tLRXM7teSJpHl6CB8KYNGu1PzWB3jnsI9bd-ETnMbIQDWHWQqeVp8YczwCWx3Tw2bUwkplEMEJp-G"
