This web service sends a connection request from a customer to you. You must run this web service as the customer that you want the connection request to originate from and specify the account that receives the request. This simulates the customer sending a connection request to you. This web service is only available in the Test environment. After a connection request is sent, you can verify it by running the web service that returns a list of pending customer connections. A connection request cannot be sent if the two accounts are already connected.
