Booking Transaction

The booking transaction object is available in the data source and Data query. This object stores data and data changes on the Zuora Billing side. It provides the systems downstream of Zuora Billing with consistent and traceable data, such as the order and booking data for Zuora Revenue.

  • The new segment's effective end date value is not the same as that of the previous segment.
  • The CCV value of the new segment is not the same as that of the previous segment.
