Zuora Workflow Overview
Zuora Workflow is a Zuora product for designing, configuring, and deploying business workflows in Zuora.
A workflow is a sequence of tasks that are performed based on predefined logic. A workflow improves efficiency and reduces errors by automating a series of complex tasks that otherwise need to be performed manually and repetitively.
For example, you can create a workflow that suspends service for delinquent accounts and resumes service when the payment is received. When the workflow runs, the suspension and resumption of service will be performed automatically. You can also create a workflow to automatically write off invoices and cancel subscriptions when chargebacks occur.
- Easy for any user to create, edit, and deploy workflows.
- Support a wide range of tasks that meet diverse business requirements.
- Integrate quickly to other systems without the need for custom code.
- Workflows can be started manually, via API, or based on a schedule.
- Support workflow prioritization so that important workflows are run without delay.
- The responsive mode allows you to run a workflow and get results immediately.
- Workflows can be managed with version control.
- The Platform Administrator can manage users’ access to Workflow by creating and assigning custom roles with different Workflow access permissions.
Workflow is placed under Platform in the Zuora UI.

Workflow Templates and Use Cases
Workflow templates are provided in Zuora Workflow for common use cases. We recommend that you go through the list of workflow templates to see if you can find one that meets your requirements.
Consider creating a blank workflow only when there are no templates that can be used.
If you are not clear about the functions of the templates, take a look at the Workflow use cases. We are building up this section and you'll see more and more use cases.
Tasks are the building blocks of workflows. You connect tasks with loops or conditions to create a workflow.
Zuora Workflow supports a wide range of tasks. Combining these tasks in workflows, you are able to automate complex business processes in various scenarios.
See Workflow Tasks for details.
