@mohdanas Are you trying to set up a product catalog that includes cloud service product offerings for your customers?

@mohdanas  - there are a couple of ways to set up your new product offerings in the Zuora Product Catalog.

 

 

Unfortunately, we don't have a way of creating the product catalog via REST methods right now.

 

My suggestion would be try and create a product, associated rate plan, and the rate plan charges on your sandbox environment first. If it looks correct when you create it there, you should be able to create the same in your production environment fairly quickly.

Ok got it.

 

But the problem is that I have thousands of products in JSON  format and it is not possible to insert it one by one and suppose in future if some ISVs update their pricing or somehting how would update I the products?. I don't think it is a good idea to do it manually. if you have REST methods I can write one script which can update the products peridically. 

 

Okay then, No issues.

 

Thanks for your support.

 

Have a good day. 

 

Thanks

@mohdanas - The one other thing that we do have that can help with bulk imports (creation of new products) is in Zuora's RBM Connect tool. This tool has an area that allows you to bulk load product catalog items via a CSV file.

Hi AmyLy,

I looking for a similar solution for a datamigration approach.

Will Zuora's RBM Connect tool also meet my requirements?

What is the pricing of that tool.

Can I try in a sandbox tennet?

Thanks in advance

Okay @AmyLy, I will look into it. And one more thing what would I do if I want to update the service list? Would it be possible to update it automatically? Or every time I need to go to the tool to update it?

 @mohdanas - when you say services list, are you talking about the associated features?
