Zuora CPQ End of Support Policy
This article describes the current end of support policy for Zuora Quotes and Zuora 360.
Reasons for the end of support policy
Zuora Quotes and Zuora 360 have been in existence for nearly seven years, and since the first release, a vast number of improvements have been made to the products. However, there are customers still on early versions of the products, and maintaining these early versions increases technical debt and slows down our pace of innovation.
This policy enables us to better utilize our resources and to quickly bring you the features and technology you’ve come to expect from Zuora. Upgrading to the latest versions allows customers to take advantage of new features and functionalities while maintaining compatibility with their existing versions.
End of support policy
The policy only affects you if you are on the following versions:
Zuora Quotes Version. 6.4x or earlier
Zuora 360 Version. 2.100 or earlier
See Check the Current Version for how to check the version of your Zuora CPQ packages.
This policy will be gradually phased in and take full effect as of July 31, 2018. At that point, Support will no longer support versions lower than the above. Please see the schedule below for full explanation of the timeline.
We recommend that you upgrade to the latest packages of Zuora Quotes and Zuora 360. The package upgrades are designed to be as self-service and as backward compatible as possible, but if you feel you have heavy customizations that need technical expertise, contact your Zuora Customer Success Manager or Zuora Global Support who can best advise you on resources you can leverage, including Zuora Services.
For further information about the upgrades, refer to the following articles in the Zuora KnowledgeCenter:
