Create New Subscription, Amend Subscription, and Renew Subscription Quotes


Create New Subscription, Amend Subscription, and Renew Subscription Quotes

The Create Quote page appears after user selects the type of quote they want to create and provides the related information for linking the new subscription, amendment, or renewal in Z-Billing.

This sample code applies to Zuora Quotes 5.92 or earlier versions.

In the later versions of Zuora Quotes, you can use the CreateQuote component to create the custom page.

Mandatory fields and field validations

The mandatory field values required are different for each type of quote. Some fields should be read-only for certain types of quotes. The existing Zuora Quotes logic is given in the sample page and controller, but you can add the enforcement of this logic in any stage of the Quote-to-Subscription flow. Without these required validations, a quote cannot be sent to Z-Billing to create a subscription.

Some examples of validations are:

  • For an Amendment type quote, the Start Date is mandatory and the Renewal Term should not be changed.
  • For a Renewal type quote, the Start Date is read-only and populated from the Z-Billing Subscription Term End Date. In addition, Renewal Term is a mandatory input field.

Sample code

  1. The NewQuote page contains the fields to be entered for proper quote creation. There are some mandatory fields per Zuora Quotes logic shown in the sample page. However, you can decide to not provide them on this page and can provide them at any stage before sending the quote to Zuora Billing for the actual creation of the Subscription.
  2. You can add any custom field and provide any specific business logic on this page before creating the actual quote.
  3. The Save button creates the new quote. You must perform the following actions to keep the Zuora Quotes logic intact:
    1. Set the Record Type and Subscription Type for all types of Quotes.
    2. For quotes of type Amendment, populate the original subscription information to quote as retrieved from Z-Billing.
    3. For quotes of type Renewal, call the global method renewQuote (Quote__c quote).
  4. The NewQuote Visualforce page and the NewQuoteController controller create a quote record. The record will be categorized on two fields: Record Type and Subscription Type. The page will receive all of the parameters passed from PrepareNewQuote and will then create the corresponding quote record.

  • The Zuora Quotes validations are enforced for each type of Quote in the New Quote page. If you do not include these validations, sending the information to Z-Billing will fail and the Quote-to-Subscription process will not be complete.
  • After the creating a quote, you can redirect the user to any page, such as a custom Product Selector wizard or a Quote Detail page. The sample page in the code will take the user to the Quote Detail page.
  • The sample controller code is not reading the Zuora Quote Configuration parameters, which is different with Zuora Quotes logic. Zuora Quotes reads the configuration settings populated by User to automatically populate and validate the quote information during creation. This is left to you to use our global method, getZuoraConfigInformation(), and use those parameters to automatically populate and validate the Quote information. See Global Classes for more information.
