Zuora Billing

here_black.png Orders and Subscriptions

Behavior change in Flexible Billing feature

We have made a change in the Flexible Billing feature. We have disabled the ability to directly update the bill-to contact and payment term for a subscription through the Subscription details page or the Update a subscription API operation. You must only update the two billing attributes through the Orders UI or API in a Terms & Conditions order action or Renewal order action. Previously, you could also update the two billing attributes through the Subscription details page or the "Update a subscription" API operation.

New field in Prepaid Balance Fund data source

A field called Consumption Amount is now available in the Prepaid Balance Fund data source. If you use the Prepaid with Drawdown feature, this field helps you determine how much revenue to recognize while your subscribers consume their prepaid units.

Support for posting invoices through REST API

You can now use a new API operation called Post invoices to post a maximum of 50 invoices in one single request. Additionally, you can also update invoice dates while posting the invoices.

New objects in Invoice Item Adjustment data source
