Orders and Subscriptions

Suspend and Resume Supported in Orders

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

The Suspend and Resume feature is now supported in Orders. New order actions Suspend and Resume are supported. You can suspend a subscription or resume a suspended subscription in the Orders UI. See Orders Object Model and Limitations in Orders for Core Zuora for more information.

Edit Subscription Name in Orders UI

Orders is now generally available as of Zuora Billing Release 284 (August 2020). You can access all the new capabilities in the Sandbox environment starting August 31, 2020. The Production deployment is September 10, 2020.

If you are an existing Zuora Subscribe and Amend customer and want to adopt Orders, see What is Orders Harmonization and join the Orders Harmonization community group for more information. If you want to enable Orders, submit a request at Zuora Global Support.

You can now edit a subscription's name in the Orders UI when you create a new subscription.


Changes to Billing Settings

A new billing rule called "Invoice Past End-of-Term when Auto-Renew is ON?" has been added to Billing Settings > Define Billing Rules. You can use this billing rule to control whether to invoice charges for an entire billing period when the end of the billing period is past the end of the subscription term, specifically when Auto Renew is set to Yes for corresponding subscriptions. 

To keep similar settings together, the existing setting called "Invoice Past End-of-Term when Auto-Renew is OFF?" has been moved from Billing Settings > Define Default Subscription Settings to Billing Settings > Define Billing Rules.

Enhancements to Generation of Multiple Taxation Items

The Generation of Multiple Taxation Items feature is now generally available. 

With this feature, you can now generate multiple taxation items for invoice or memo items spanning multiple tax rate periods, in the tenants with the Invoice Settlement or Order Metrics feature enabled.
