Features and Enhancements


Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) Bank Transfer Payment Method Supported in Payment Pages 2.0

Starting with this release, Payment Pages 2.0 supports the SEPA Bank Transfer as a payment method. You can create a Payment Page to accept payments via SEPA Direct Debit. 

You need to enable the Bank Transfer tenant permission to be able to create a Payment Page for SEPA Bank Transfer.

See Configure Payment Pages 2.0 for creating a Payment Page for a payment method.

Enhanced CRM Account Id Field with a Link to Salesforce Account

In Zuora application, the CRM Account ID field on the Customer Account page specifies to which Salesforce Account the Customer Account belongs. When the the field contains a valid Salesforce Account ID, the corresponding Salesforce account name appears with a link to the Salesforce Account page. If the CRM Account ID is invalid or empty, a warning icon displays. The CRM Account ID field is an editable text field.

See Basic Information for Customer Account for information about the CRM Account ID field.


Two New Fields Under Payment Object

Two new fields have been added to the Payment object fields: Source and SourceName, which indicate how the payment was created, such as through API or manually.

See Payment  for more information.

Additional Configuration Parameters Added to Chase Paymentech (Orbital Gateway)

Two configuration parameters have been added to the Chase Paymentech (Orbital Gateway) that enables AVS and CVV filtering.

See Chase Paymentech (Orbital Gateway) for more information.

Zuora APIs


Ability to Override the Start Time for an AQuA Job to Retrieve Incremental Records

You can now override the time from which a Stateful AQuA job incrementally retrieves records that have been created or modified, using the incrementalTime parameter. For example, if you set incrementalTime = 2015-01-21 10:30:01, AQuA will retrieve records that have created or modified beginning at 10:30:02. If this parameter is not set, AQuA will continue to use the Start Time of the last AQuA session to retrieve records incrementally.

See Post Query with Retrieval Time for more information.


Update or Assign Billing Batch when Creating Accounts through REST API

In R184, Zuora introduced alias names for batches accessible via SOAP. In this release, we now support batch fields for the REST API. This enhancement allows for use of default batches (Batch1, Batch2...) as well as batch aliases.

You can access the batch field using the following REST API resources:


WSDL Version

For Release 185, the WSDL version is 65.0. See Zuora WSDL for information about downloading the current version.​

Resolved Issues

The following issue was resolved in this release.

Billing & Subscription

GatewayResponse and GatewayResponseCode not found in Subscribe Result when expected
