FAQs

  • How frequently is Zuora Warehouse updated with the latest data?
    The data-update frequency of Zuora Warehouse depends on the data-refresh level you purchased. Available refresh rates are as follows:
    • 5 minutes
    • 15 minutes
    • 60 minutes
    • 12 hours
    • 24 hours
    Typically, it is advisable to refresh data every 15 or 60 minutes. Additional fees are applicable depending on the refresh rate option. Contact your Zuora account representative for more information.
  • Are there limits to how much data Zuora will share to my Zuora Warehouse?
    Yes, Zuora will share data up to your committed Total Active Rows (TAR) level. For more information about TAR, see TAR_USAGE_HISTORY.
  • What does TAR stand for?
    TAR stands for Total Active Rows and is the total count of rows made available from Zuora to your Zuora Warehouse. Zuora will exclude data from INFORMATION_SCHEMA and tables for monitoring in the total active row count. Zuora will include soft deleted records as part of the total active row count. 
    Customers are able to view and monitor total active rows by querying the TAR_USAGE_HISTORY table provided by Zuora, which is a daily snapshot and accounting of TAR levels.
    Your purchase of this feature commits you to a specific total committed TAR level for each tenant identified on the applicable Order Form.
  • What happens if the data in my Zuora tenant grows so much that my committed TARs level is exceeded?
    If your committed TAR level is exceeded, Zuora will pause new data updates into your share from Zuora until your TAR level is increased. Contact your Zuora account representative to discuss options for increasing your allowance if you are approaching your TAR limit.
  • Are there any costs associated with querying data from my Zuora Warehouse?
    Yes, every query issued against the Zuora Warehouse will consume compute credits. Zuora will pause extracting data from your Zuora Warehouse if your compute credit is used up. Contact your Zuora account representative to discuss options for increasing your compute credit.
    You can use the WAREHOUSE_METERING_HISTORY table to monitor your compute credit usage.

Limitations

  • Zuora Warehouse does not support Revenue objects for now.
  • All monetary values of Billing objects are in transaction currency. Currently, conversions to “HomeCurrency” are not supported.
