Support for migrating custom object records using Deployment Manager
When you create or update a custom object definition through the Zuora UI or API, you can now specify whether Deployment Manager migrates custom object records. For information about creating and updating custom object definitions through the Zuora UI, see Custom object definitions.
By default, Deployment Manager does not migrate custom object records when migrating custom object definitions between tenants.
If you enable the Migrate Records setting for a custom object definition, Deployment Manager migrates custom object records along with the custom object definition.
The Migrate Records setting is available as a field called
enableRecordMigration in the following REST API operations:
Support for field comparison in filter statements of Export ZOQL
Filter statements of Export ZOQL now support comparing Zuora fields using binary operators. You can use the field comparison syntax to build filters for your Export ZOQL queries.
