Edit a CRM Account ID

To change CRM IDs for a large number of CRM accounts, such as when you redirect your Zuora tenant to a different Salesforce org, we do recommend that you first perform a Sync Cleanup of Accounts and Related Objects before changing CRM IDs.  The Sync Cleanup removes all Zuora Billing and Payment data previously synchronized over to Salesforce. Simultaneously, the Sync Cleanup resets your Salesforce associations so that you can now edit your CRM Account IDs.

To change CRM IDs for one or a few CRM accounts from Zuora UI, we do not recommend a Sync Cleanup followed by a full sync operation as it is a time consuming operation that could cause an extended interruption of business operations.  

After updating the CRM Account IDs, perform a Zuora 360 Sync to re-synchronize your data back into Salesforce. If you performed a Sync Cleanup before the update, the next sync, manual or scheduled, will be automatically a full sync. 

Change One CRM Account ID

To change the CRM Account ID in the customer account:

  1. In Zuora, navigate to Zuora > Customer Accounts.
  2. Click the customer account you want to edit.
  3. Click edit.
  4. Update the CRM Account ID for the applicable customer account. 
    See Find the Salesforce Account IDs for retrieving the CRM Account ID.
  5. Click save.
  6. Re-synchronize the Accounts & Related Objects data as described in Synchronize Data from Zuora.

Change CRM IDs for Multiple Accounts Using the Zuora API

To change CRM Account IDs using the Zuora API, you must:

  • Grant the required user permissions
  • Enable the History Tracking setting for the Account field on the Billing Account object.

We recommend that you perform a Sync Cleanup of the Accounts & Related Objects before you change CRM IDs using the API.

Required Permissions
