REST API

See API Changelog for a summary of REST API updates and documentation updates in the Zuora API Reference.

Invoicing and Invoice Settlement

Support for Stopping Payment Runs that Are in Processing Status

You can now stop payment runs in Processing status. After a payment run has started processing payments, you can stop the payment run through the Zuora UI. 

After you stop a payment run, no more payments will be processed by this payment run. The payments that are already processed by this payment run are not impacted. 

See Stop Payment Runs for more information.

New REST API Operation to Scrub Sensitive Data Related to Contacts

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enforced in May 2018 stipulates that the personally identifiable information (PII) of EU citizens must be stored in enterprises using pseudonymization or full anonymization. 

In compliance with GDPR, Zuora provides you with a new REST API operation called “Scrub contact” to handle PII data. By using this API operation, you can replace all sensitive data related to a contact with anonymized values that will be stored in Zuora databases. 

The sensitive data in the following Zuora business objects is anonymized:

  • Contact
  • Contact Snapshots

See Scrub Contacts for more information.

Resolved: Credit Amount Not Populated on Credit Memo Creation Page

Previously, when creating credit memos from invoices, no value was automatically populated in the Credit Amount column on the Create Credit/Debit Memo page.

This issue has now been resolved. When you create credit memos from invoices, the Create Credit/Debit Memo page now displays an automatically populated value in the Credit Amount column for each item. The value automatically populated in the Credit Amount column is the same as is displayed in the Available to Credit column.

Applied To Item ID Now Available in the Credit Memo Item Data Source

This feature is only available if you have the Invoice Settlement feature enabled. The Invoice Settlement feature is in Limited Availability. If you want to have access to the feature, submit a request at Zuora Global Support

When using the Credit Memo Item data source to export data, you can now choose the Applied To Item Id field in the base object. This field indicates the ID of the item that the credit memo item is applied to.
