Re: Include a flag to say if an invoice should be posted when using the API

Include a flag to say if an invoice should be posted when using the API

When using the Zuora APIs to create a subscription there is a flag to generateinvoice bit if it is set to true the invoice will also be posted. It would be really useful to have an additional flag so that if generateinvoice is true then an additional flag for post invoice can be true or false. This should also be available when using generate invoice via Zuora for Salesforce. Sometimes customers want to verify invoices before they are posted but the want the invoices generated automatically.

 Greeting - This is a great feedback which is being reviewed by our Product Team.  We will follow up shortly.

 

Another approach is to set GenerateInvoice field to False in your subscribe() call and create a generate() call which will create an invoice in Draft status.

Hi,

What is the status of this one? In the documentation, I cannot see another tag than Generate Invoice, but maybe there is something that I am missing.

This might be very helpful for us as well, especially when the contracts are negotiated and the invoice needs to be checked before posting it.

 

Thank you!
