Storing merged account details

Hi all, 

I'm looking for a way to store merged account details (ie. the account id merging from and to, and the account name merging from and to). The purpose of this to inform another database that is communicating with Salesforce via the api.

Hi Connor, 

As far as I know, you have to query for merged account details and store in the Account object 
SELECT MasterRecordId FROM Account
WHERE MasterRecordId != null

As per the documentation, If this object was deleted as the result of a merge, this field contains the ID of the record that was kept. If this object was deleted for any other reason or has not been deleted, the value is null.

Or you can build a trigger. I recommend taking a look at this example code
