Use attachments in Zuora to upload documents of various formats to associate additional information with accounts, subscriptions, invoices, credit memos, or debit memos. Example attachments could be purchase orders (PO's), tax exemption document, or ownership transfer forms.
Credit memos or debit memos are 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.
You can upload any number of attachments for each supported Zuora record, up to the value set in the Maximum number of attachments per record field in tenant profile.
An attachment can belong to only one Zuora record, such as a specific invoice, a credit memo, a debit memo, a subscription, or a customer account.
For subscriptions, an attachment is tied to all versions of the subscription via the Subscription Number.
See Attachments for managing attachments through Zuora REST API.
