Previously you could only update the price of product rate plan charge tiers using the Zuora SOAP API. Now you can update all tier information of product rate plan charges using the SOAP update call. This enhancement allows you to update thousands of pricing tiers within minutes instead of updating charges one at a time from the Zuora UI.
See Update Product Catalog for more information on updating product rate plan charge tiers.
Please ensure that your Zuora integration complies with these upcoming changes before the Zuora April release.
The 4.0 release includes the following enhancement.
A new global method was added to send REST requests to Zuora. The
sendRequest global method takes in an Apex HTTP request, adds the authentication session header using the credentials set up in Connection Settings, and submits the request to Zuora.
The following Sold To Contact fields in Zuora for Salesforce are now synchronized and populated with the values in the corresponding Zuora Billing Account (Zuora__CustomerAccount__c) fields:
See Sync Field Mapping of Account and Related Objects for mapping of the new fields between Zuora and Zuora for Salesforce.
Zuora has been moving to a new service to create Quote PDF documents. In this release, we will stop supporting the old Quote PDF generation service. The existing Quote templates created for the old generation service will automatically be upgraded to work with the new service.
Now you can add quote charge tiers and bundles to quote PDF documents.
Quote charge tiers are listed in a nested table inside the charge table.
To add tiers or bundles to your quote PDF documents, create new quote templates using the new sample template. The new quote template will be available in the Commerce Settings as of the Production release of the 198 release.
Refer to Supported Merge Fields for Quote Templates for the new and existing merge fields available for quote documents.

SOAP API Change History
See Zuora SOAP API Version History for a summary of updates made to the SOAP API in recent Zuora releases.
Please read this important note before using WSDL version 69 or later.
In WSDL 68 and earlier, 56 Zuora SOAP API date fields are treated as dateTime fields. As of WSDL 69, Zuora will treat these fields as date only fields. These fields are no longer compatible with dateTime values. Date and dateTime values in WSDL 69 are now the same as date and dateTime values in the Zuora application.
Before downloading and using WSDL 69, check to see if your SOAP integration passes or receives dateTime values to or from any of these fields.
The AQuA API is also affected by these date field changes. If you use the AQuA API, you must review the date field changes and take the appropriate action.
See Date Field Changes in the WSDL for more information.
