Billing

Default Value Changes for New Bill Runs

Starting from this release, when you create bill runs through the Zuora user interface, the following fields on the New Bill Run page and on the New Scheduled or Recurring Bill Run page have new default values.

  • The From Batch field is set to Specific Batch, Batch 1 by default.
  • The Automatically renew auto-renew subscriptions that are up for renewal check box is checked by default.

These new default values can help reduce potential billing errors. Zuora recommends that you keep default values for the above-mentioned fields when creating bill runs.

Enhancement for Unposting Posted Billing Documents

The Billing user permission "Cancel Posted Invoices" is now called “Cancel Posted Billing Documents”. This permission now controls whether to unpost posted billing documents, including invoices, credit memos, and debit memos.

By default, you can unpost billing documents in Posted status through the Zuora user interface and API.

For more information, see Billing Permissions and Unpost Credit and Debit Memos.

Usage Threshold Notifications

The Usage Threshold Notifications feature in Limited Availability. If you wish to have access to the feature, submit a request at Zuora Global Support.

The Usage Threshold Notifications feature provides the capability to define notifications on usage consumption events in usage-based services. With this feature, you can use email and callout notifications to automate communications about usage consumption data.

You can now create a notification definition with a specified usage percentage threshold on included units. When the percentage of included units exceeds the specified threshold, a notification about the usage consumption status is triggered.

Currently, this feature is only specific to the Overage and Tiered with Overage charge models.
See Usage Threshold Notifications for more information.
