Upgrade Zuora Quotes to Q4 2016

This document explains how to upgrade Zuora Quotes Q3 2016 Release (Version 7.3x or 7.4x) to the Q4 2016 Release (Version 8.0).

If you have made any customizations to the out-of-the-box Zuora Quotes, you may run into issues upon upgrade. In some cases, code changes may be required upon upgrade across versions. Refer to the release notes for the  new or updated features in this release and to determine if your customization needs to be revisited.

Notable changes, in this release and previous releases, that may affect your customization are:

  • In 6.54, the Quote Charge object was migrated to the Quote Rate Plan Charge object.
  • Starting from 7.x, the Product2 object is used for products instead of ZProduct.

If you are on an older version than 7.1.x, follow the Zuora Quotes Upgrade Paths and perform the required upgrade steps in each version first. For example:

  • If your current version is 5.9x, your upgrade path is: 5.90 > 5.100 >  6.0 > 7.1.x > 7.3 > 7.4x > 8.0
  • If your current version is Titanium Release, version 6.0, 6.50, 6.60, or 7.0, your upgrade path is: 6.0 > 7.1.x > 7.3 > 7.4x > 8.0
  • If your current version is 6.50, 6.60, or 7.1.x, you must manually run the migration script in the following scenario:
    • You have not run the migration script introduced in Version 6.51.
    • Your migration script failed with an error.

If Zuora Quotes has never been installed in your Salesforce org, perform the standard installation as described in Install the Zuora Quotes Package.

Follow the steps to upgrade Zuora Quotes to this version:

  1. Check and enable the Enable Guided Product Selector setting in Advanced Quoting Configuration Settings. The new product selector pages require that the guided selling is turned on.
  2. Update the Quotes page layout assignment to the 8.0 version.
  3. Update the quoting flows to use the new 8.0 pages.

See Enable Bundling in Zuora Quotes for the steps if you want to enable Bundling in your org.

If you are enabling the Bundling setting with this upgrade, you will need to have performed a successful Product Catalog Sync.

If you need to continue using the old product selector, follow the steps below to revert to the old product selector.

  1. Assign the 7.xx page layouts of the Quote objects to your user profiles.
  2. Check and update the quoting flow.

If there are any customizations that use global methods to refer to Zuora Quotes custom fields, add those custom fields to the white list field set.

If there are any customizations that use global methods to refer to Zuora Quotes custom fields, review the customization to determine whether code changes are required before upgrading to this version.
