Use the execute() call to execute a process to split an invoice into multiple invoices. The original invoice must be in draft status. The resulting invoices are called split invoices. This SOAP API reference includes syntax, call wrappers and container descriptions, requirements, and examples.


This feature is in Limited Availability. If you want to have access to the feature, submit a request at Zuora Global Support

To split a draft invoice into multiple split invoices:

  1. Use the create() call to create a separate InvoiceSplitItem object for each split invoice that you want to create from the original draft invoice.
  2. Use the create() call to create a single InvoiceSplit object to collect all of the InvoiceSplitItem objects.
  3. Use the execute() call to split the draft invoice into multiple split invoices.

You need to create InvoiceSplitItem objects and an InvoiceSplit object before you can use the execute() call.
