Orders and Subscriptions

Resolved: InitialTerm and InitialTermPeriodType fields not updated through T&Cs

The migration to full Orders is in Limited Availability. We are actively soliciting feedback from a small set of early adopters before releasing as generally available.

Previously in Orders, if the lastTerm nested field was set through a Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) order action before a subscription was renewed, the initialTerm and InitialTermPeriodType fields of the subscription were not updated. This issue has now been resolved: InitialTerm and InitialTermPeriod are updated as expected.

Previously in Subscribe and Amend, after a subscription is renewed, changing the term type from TERMED to EVERGREEN through a T&Cs amendment updated the initialTerm and InitialTermPeriodType fields of the subscription. This issue has now been resolved: initialTerm and InitialTermPeriodType are not updated.


Security enhancements for Payment Pages 2.0

Zuora has enhanced the security for Payment Pages 2.0 for all payment methods.
The following rate limiting settings are now available by navigating to Payments Settings > Setup Hosted Pages:

  • Enable Rate Limiting
  • IP Whitelist
  • Submission Limit Per Minute
  • Submission Limit Per Hour

You can customize the configuration based on your business use cases and security tolerance. See Configure Payment Pages 2.0 for more information.

To complement the security enhancements, the default values for the following page-level settings have been updated for newly created Payment Pages:

  • Enable Captcha: This checkbox is now selected by default. Previously, it was deselected by default.
  • Limit the number of submission before CAPTCHA Challenge: 0. Previously, the default value was 15.
  • Limit the number of submission before blocking Submission: 3. Previously, the default value was 30.

For more information, see Configure Advanced Security Checks for Payment Pages 2.0.
