New Features and Enhancements

New Zuora CPQ Domains as Supported Remote Sites

Site URL Description Zuora for Salesforce API Endpoint Zuora for Salesforce ApiSandbox API Endpoint Zuora ApiSandbox API Endpoint

When you enters the above URLs as endpoints when setting up the Zuora connection in Zuora Quotes and Zuora 360, Salesforce will no longer return an error of unknown remote site.

Resolved Issues

Chatter feed for the Billing Account object is automatically enabled after installing the Zuora 360 package

When you installed Zuora 360 2.80.3, the chatter feed for the Billing Account object was automatically enabled on the billing account name field, potentially causing sync performance degradation. Now the chatter feed is disabled by default on the objects, Billing Account, Invoice, Subscription. You can enable the chatter feed on these objects manually after installation.

The names of the object and column used for Real-time Sync are marked as "Invalid"

The objects and columns used for Real-time Sync were correctly renamed. We have also created the following new Page Layouts, which contains Lookup Fields to the Product and Payment Term objects: 

  • Billing Account Layout v2.9
  • ZInvoice Layout v2.9
  • Subscription Charge Layout v2.9

Make Page Layout Assignments accordingly.

A retry logic to the zLogin SOAP API call

The zLogin() call is now retried up to three times if Zuora returns a 'Read Timed Out' message' in a SOAP response.

Patch Release 2.90.1

The following issue was resolved in the 2.90.1 release.

A new scheduled Apex job to clean up sync history records

Each time a Zuora 360 sync job runs, a Sync History record and five CrmId Change Result records are created in Salesforce. When you enable Real-Time Sync, the number of these sync history records can grow large and quickly hit the Salesforce storage limit. 
A scheduled job was added to alleviate the issue. The job periodically deletes from Salesforce all sync history records that are older than seven days.

Patch Release 2.90.2

The following issue was resolved in the 2.90.2 release.

Time zone fix

Zuora 360 users in a different time zone than GMT received inconsistent results when querying data using Order Builder. Now the offsets are managed correctly, and users get correct results. Date/time fields queried from Zuora are offset by the difference between the current Salesforce user's time zone and GMT. For example, if the user is in the Singapore time zone (GMT +8) queries a date stored as 1PM in Zuora, in Salesforce, the user sees 9PM, the value in Zuora plus 8 hours. 

exclaim9redY-icon-sm.png Order Builder does not support setting the time zone in a date field. When you create or update date fields in Order Builder, leave the time zone out. See zObject Class for setting date field values with the setValue() call.
