Export / Import configuration

It would be most helpful to be able to export a tenant configuration to a file, like meta-data or similar, and have the ability to import it into a tenant.  There are 2 use cases for this: first, to back up and archive configurations to satisfy auditor requests to validate no unapproved configurations have changed.  Second, in ensuring environment integrity in API Sandboxes or Services tenants to your source/production tenant.

Since it has been five months since the internal deployment do you have an ETA yet for when customers might have access to this?

Adding my voice to the many customers that would benefit from this.  We are in progress on adopting Zuora, and the manual process of syncing environments is worthy of ridicule.

We can refresh a non-prd environment and deprodify it with a minimum of effort for a couple of teams.  We can audit any environment for differences in minutes.  These are all operational processes that mature organizations realize as a necessity.  We find that many SaaS providers cannot perform this basic function.  They are learning as they mature that this HAS to be a core service offering especially if you presenting an app in audit scope for SOX, PCI, HIPPA, GDPR, or any other framework that requires you to prove your work through audit.

Zuora...  sooner rather than later.  This thread was started 2 years ago.

Hi, any news about this improvement? The customer often asks us for an automation process and a back-up ability for the Zuora's settings configuration. We continue to follow the thread with interest!

Best Regards
