Resolved Issues

The following issues were resolved in this release.

Zuora Billing and Payments

The following issues were fixed in Z-Billing and Z-Payments.

Payment Declined Notification was sent to end customers for errors unrelated to end customers

Previously, if customers configured Zuora to use the Payment Declined notification, Zuora automatically sent a notification email to end customers when there was a payment error even if the error was not related to end customer activities. 

We have fixed this issue in this release to send notifications to end customers only when the error is related to end customers.

List Page UI Load Time Improvements

In this release, we have improved the load times of multiple Zuora pages by removing the counts from the Views on the Product Catalog, Customer Account, Subscriptions, and Amendments list pages.

The calculation of these counts was adding substantial time to the load time of these pages, and customer feedback indicated that the counts are of marginal value within these modules.

If you want to obtain the total count for a particular view on an ad-hoc basis, then click the View link itself and see the total item count on the resulting page. For example, click Current to see how many current products that you have in your product catalog:

Queries were slow on the Product List page

Previously, queries were slow on the Product List page due to the calculation for RatePlan counts for each product.

We have fixed this issue in this release by removing the counts on the Product List page, displaying them only on the individual product detail pages.

Queries were slow when exporting billing accounts

Previously, exporting billing accounts was slow.

We have fixed this issue in this release by moving customer accounts to asynchronous mode. When users click a customer account and select Export Customer Account, the page is redirected to a reports exports page where users click the Export button to generate the export file.

Zuora Commerce

The following issues were fixed in Zuora Commerce.

Z-Force

The following issues were fixed in Z-Force.

Need to view the next charge date

Previously, users could not determine to what date the customer has been charged for a particular charge at the subscription level.

We have fixed this issue in this release by adding the next charge date to the subscription.

Zuora Finance

The following issues were fixed in Zuora Finance.

Z-Suite

The following were fixed in Z-Suite.

Update NS Country Cross Reference
There are several country codes included in the NS documentation that are not technically supported for the version of the NS API used by Z-Suite (2010.1). The Z-Suite cross reference table was updated to include these as “UNKNOWN COUNTRY CODE”. Zuora Accounts with the following country codes are not synced to NS. The workaround is to choose a different country.
