Repeatable Deployments

Hi All,

 

We have 3 environments, a dev environment, staging environment and a production system.  We're making changes in our dev instance and then moving through the chain once they changes have been tested and signed off. We're running Z-Quote and Z-Billing. 

 

My question is whether anyone has a mechanism for rolling out changes through deployment scripts/APIs rather than having to make changes manually (which is prone to errors). On large scale implementations, surely there must be a way of transferring configuration from one system to another rather than making the changes by hand? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Damon,

 

Are your dev and stg environments both an API sandbox or is dev sandbox and stg a PCE? referring the zuora environments

 

Unlike Salesforce, there is no deployment functionality between environments. You can refresh PCE with your config/data in production, but that's not what you're asking. You can use the mass updater to maniuplate data on a large scale - amendments, accounting codes on JEs, etc.

 

Aside from prod --> PCE, there is no deployment functionality.

Re: Repeatable Deployments

I checked out the API in hopes of being able to get and set settings through it, but there's no option for that either.

Not having a deployment process somewhat defeats the purpose of having a sandbox in the first place, especially if you're at the early stages with Zuora. Sadly it looks like you're stuck transferring over all your changes manually.

Feels like a major shortcoming in the platform, especially at the large scale deployment end. The world is going repeatable/incremental deployments and Zuora doesn't support this.
