Zuora Connection Settings


Zuora Connection Settings

Configure your organization's Zuora API connection settings

To establish the API connection to Zuora, you must configure the Zuora Connection Settings to authorize Zuora SOAP API for your Salesforce organization.

The Zuora Quotes Connection Settings are at the global level of your organization. If you have the Multi-entity enabled, all the Zuora entities in your org share the same user name and password. When you test the connection, you receive the connection status for each entity.

To configure Zuora connection settings:

  1. In Zuora Quotes, click the Zuora Config tab.
  2. On the Zuora Quotes Configuration Settings page, click Zuora Connection Settings.
  3. Click Edit Settings.
  4. Enter information for the configuration fields. The values that you enter in these fields depend on your Zuora and Salesforce configuration. The table below describes these fields in more detail.
    Note: If you do not have an API User Name and API Password, you must create one.
  5. Click Test Connection to verify the new connection setting to Zuora.
  6. Click Save.

The following fields are available to set up a connection to Zuora.

Field Description Required?

Specify the URL provided by Zuora, including the WSDL version that you want to use. This will typically be in the format:

<Zuora Domain URL>/apps/services/a/<version>

<Zuora Domain URL> depends on the Zuora environment:

  • US Production -
  • US API Sandbox -
  • Production Copy
  • Performance Test
  • US Cloud Production -
  • US Cloud API Sandbox -
  • US Central Sandbox -
  • EU Cloud Production -
  • EU Cloud API Sandbox -
  • EU Central Sandbox -

We recommend that you specify the version 80.0 of the WSDL.

For example: 

API User Name

Use the user name provided by Zuora. 

Zuora recommends that you use an API user for the connection setting so that the password does not expire. However, you can use either a UI or an API user to successfully establish a connection.

API Password Use the password provided by Zuora. Yes
Enable Apex Call Out Debug Leave this field unchecked. This is used only for debugging purposes. No

Authorize the additional Zuora REST API

As of Quotes 9.22, you can authorize the additional Zuora REST API. Some flows in Zuora CPQ may need to connect to Zuora REST API. See the Zuora REST API URLs below.

  • Production:

If you install Zuora Quotes 9.22+ or CPQ X is enabled in your organization, the Zuora REST API is automatically authorized.

However, if you upgrade Zuora Quotes from an older version than 9.22 to version 9.22+, you must manually authorize Zuora REST API. Otherwise, a warning will be reported when you click Test Connection to verify the connection setting to Zuora.
