From this release, a new survey widget is introduced to replace the previous NPS survey, which was presented on the homepage banner in the Zuora application. The new survey widget will display for randomly selected users after the user logs in to Zuora. Use this new survey widget to provide feedback about Zuora products without navigating away from the current UI page.
Orders and Subscriptions
Behavior change in Flexible Billing feature
We have made a change in the Flexible Billing feature. We have disabled the ability to directly update the bill-to contact and payment term for a subscription through the Subscription details page or the Update a subscription API operation. You must only update the two billing attributes through the Orders UI or API in a Terms & Conditions order action or Renewal order action. Previously, you could also update the two billing attributes through the Subscription details page or the "Update a subscription" API operation.
Usage and Rating
New field in Prepaid Balance Fund data source
A field called Consumption Amount is now available in the Prepaid Balance Fund data source. If you use the Prepaid with Drawdown feature, this field helps you determine how much revenue to recognize while your subscribers consume their prepaid units.
Invoicing and Tax
Support for posting invoices through REST API
You can now use a new API operation called Post invoices to post a maximum of 50 invoices in one single request. Additionally, you can also update invoice dates while posting the invoices.
New objects in Invoice Item Adjustment data source
The following objects are now available in the Invoice Item Adjustment data source:
- Bill To Contact Snapshot
- Sold To Contact Snapshot
To have values for both objects, you must set the Preserve snapshot of bill-to and sold-to contacts when billing documents are posted? billing rule to Yes.
General availability of support for Google reCAPTCHA Enterprise Interactive Test mode for Payment Pages 2.0
The support for Google reCAPTCHA Enterprise Interactive Test mode for Payment Pages 2.0 is now generally available to all Zuora customers. Previously, you had to submit a request at Zuora Global Support to enable this feature.
Support for self-configuration of Google reCAPTCHA Enterprise checkbox site key
We now support using Google reCAPTCHA Enterprise Interactive Test mode with your own Google Cloud Enterprise account. When configuring the tenant-level Hosted Pages settings, you can configure your own account credentials, including Enterprise Checkbox Site Key, Google Cloud API Key, and Google Cloud Project ID. Previously, only Zuora’s Google Cloud Enterprise account for the checkbox-based interactive test can be used.
For more information, see Configure Payment Pages 2.0.
Enhancements on stored credential transaction support for multiple payment gateway integrations
We have expanded the support for stored credential transactions for different card brands on the following payment gateway integrations:

Support for passing indicator of requesting 3DS2 challenge to Checkout.com
We have enhanced our Checkout.com gateway integration to support passing the indicator of requesting a cardholder challenge to the gateway. A new setting called 3DS Challenge Indicator is now available on the gateway setting page for the Checkout.com integration. You can select one of the following indicator options to indicate your preference for whether or not a 3DS challenge should be performed.
- Challenge Requested
- Challenge Requested Mandate

Events and Notifications
Support for resending notifications through API with partial success responses
After resending notifications through the following API operations, if one or more notifications are resent successfully, you can now receive 202 Accepted HTTP responses with the error code and error message of each failed notification:
Details about the responses of these API operations are as follows:

Support for modifying active workflow versions
You can now modify the settings of active workflow versions directly without having to create an inactive version first. Except for the Version Details field and the Mapped Input Fields and Params section, all fields in the Setting tab of an active version can be updated.
Note that in Mapped Input Fields and Params, the Default values that can be input on prompt during manual execution of the active versions can still be modified.
