Zuora for Salesforce Releases (Q4 2016)

Token Id and Second Token Id Synchronized to Salesforce

Starting in this release, the Token Id and Second Token Id fields on the Payment Method object are synced from Zuora to Salesforce, enabling you to support custom use cases involving payments in Salesforce.

Typically, the Token Id is used for the customer identifier or profile on the payment gateway side, and the Second Token Id is used as the underlying individual payment instrument identifier. 

See PaymentMethod for descriptions of the TokenId and SecondTokenId fields.

Refer to Sync Field Mapping of Account and Related Objects to see how the TokeId and SecondTokeId fields are mapped to the fields in Zuora for Salesforce.

Tenant Details Added to 360 Sync Email Notifications

The following information is now included in the email notifications sent out when any type of sync jobs have processed.

  • When Zuora Multi-entity is enabled in your tenant:
    • Tenant Name
    • Tenant Id
    • Entity Name
    • Entity Id
  • When Zuora Multi-entity is not enabled in your tenant:
    • Tenant Name
    • Tenant Id

See Synchronize Data from Zuora for more information.

Support for Billing Timing Option in Product Catalog Syncs from Zuora to Salesforce

The value you set in the Billing Timing field on Product Rate Plan Charge in Zuora is now synchronized to the corresponding field in Salesforce to support billing the charge in advance or arrears for quotes.

Once a product rate plan charge is added to a subscription, you can no longer update the billing timing of the product rate plan charge in Zuora.

See Billing Timing for how the setting affects your subscriptions in Zuora.

Refer to Sync Field Mapping of Product Catalog Related Objects and Sync Field Mapping of Subscription and Related Objects to see how the Billing Timing field is mapped to the field in Zuora for Salesforce.
