subscriptionState field of the SubscriptionValidator.Result Class. The
subscriptionState field will be set to
IGNORED upon validation of a subscription marked as Do Not Send To Zuora. See SubscriptionValidator.Result Class and Sample Code for more information.
The release 3.4 of Zuora Connector for Salesforce CPQ includes the following enhancements.
Enhanced Global Method - sendContractsToZuora()
Zuora has enhanced the
ZSBConnectorUtils.sendContractsToZuora() global method to support Orders. You can now use this global method to submit Salesforce Contracts to Zuora Orders if you have integrated Orders in your Salesforce org. See ZSBConnectorUtils Class for more information.
New Global Method - backFill()
A new global method
ZSBConnectorUtils.backFill()is now available. This method triggers a backfill job, which will read the Contract Ids of the Salesforce Contracts, invoke the process to query Zuora Subscriptions and Charges, and backfill the relevant fields in the Salesforce Contracts and Subscription lines. See ZSBConnectorUtils Class for more information.
The release 3.2 of Zuora Connector for Salesforce CPQ includes the following enhancements and resolved issues.
Pricing with Precision of 9 Decimal Places
Prior to 3.2, the Price Per Billing Period field, which is used to define the pricing to be sent to Zuora for Flat Fee and Per Unit charges, had a precision of 2 decimal places. It now has a precision of 9 decimal places, to support higher unit price scale in Salesforce CPQ.
Cancellations Not Triggered Immediately When Cancellation Date Is Set
This functionality is only available if you have the Orders feature enabled.
Prior to 3.2, with Orders enabled, cancellations were instantly triggered in Zuora as soon as Cancellation Date was set on a Contract. To align the Order submission flow with other types of Order Actions, cancellations are no longer immediately triggered as soon as the amendment is set. Rather, cancellations should be handled through the Submit Order Plugin framework per implementation.
Note that cancellations continue to work as before if you do not enable Orders.
The release 3.1 of Zuora Connector for Salesforce CPQ includes the following enhancements.
New Property - PreviewRequestBody in SubmitContractOrder.Result
