Resolved Issues

The 3.3 release includes the following resolved issue and other internal operational fixes.

Communication Profile Id Incorrectly Populated with the Communication Profile Name

Starting in the Version 3.0 of Zuora 360, the Communication Profile Id (Zuora__CommunicationProfileId__c) field was incorrectly synchronized with the Name of the Communication Profile instead of the Id. 

In this version, a new field was added to the Billing Account (Zuora__CustomerAccount__c) object and mapped to the correct Communication Profile Id in Zuora. The new field is Zuora Communication Profile Id (Zuora__Communication_Profile_Id__c).

The previous Communication Profile Id (Zuora__CommunicationProfileId__c) field is deprecated as of the Version 3.3.

      (String username, String password, String entityId)

The new methods let you log into a specific Zuora entity from Order Builder. See zlogin Method for detail information about zlogin method.
