If the My Connect menu is not available in your Zuora tenant, contact Zuora Global Support. Include your tenant's ID and environment type in the request.

Link Your Zuora Tenant and My Connect

Before purchasing and installing apps for your organization, you should link your Zuora tenant and My Connect. This is a one-time procedure that grants apps permission to access your Zuora tenant.

To link your Zuora tenant:

  1. If you do not have a Zuora Connect account, visit https://connect.zuora.com/users/register to sign up for a Zuora Connect account.

    See Sign Up for a Zuora Connect Account for more information.

  2. Follow the procedure in Link Your Zuora Tenant and Connect.

    You must perform this procedure in Zuora Connect.

You are now ready to purchase and install apps in your Zuora tenant.

To purchase an app for your organization:

  1. Log into your Zuora tenant.
  2. Navigate to My Connect > Marketplace, then locate the app to purchase.

To launch the app, click the app's name in the My Connect menu in your Zuora tenant.
