In the Billing - Revenue Integration environment, besides Zuora Billing, you can also upload transaction data from other upstream systems into Zuora Revenue. For example, if you use Zuora Billing to manage the subscription-based orders and another system to manage traditional orders, transaction data from all these upstream systems can be interfaced into a single instance of Zuora Revenue. The benefit of doing this is that Zuora Revenue can work as a central place for revenue management.
However, there are some native limitations for Billing - Revenue Integration environments. For more information, see Known limitations of Billing - Revenue Integration. In addition to these limitations, after you enable the integration between Zuora Billing and Zuora Revenue in the system, certain transaction types from other upstream systems will not be supported to be uploaded to Zuora Revenue.
Refer to the following table to understand the differences of supported transaction types in different integration scenarios.
- The 1st column lists all types of transactions that can be processed in Zuora Revenue.
- The 2nd column stands for the environment where Billing - Revenue Integration is enabled and transaction data come from Zuora Billing only. Yes indicates the current transaction type in the 1st column is supported. No indicates the current transition type in the 1st column is not supported.
- The 3rd column stands for the environment where Billing - Revenue Integration is enabled and transaction data come from both Zuora Billing and other upstream systems. Yes indicates the current transaction type in the 1st column is supported. No indicates the current transition type in the 1st column is not supported.
- The 4th column lists the system behavior in some specific scenarios that you should be aware of.
All the listed transaction types can be supported in the system where integration between Zuora Billing and Zuora Revenue is disabled.
