Zuora Usage Record Forwarder

The Zuora Usage Record Forwarder is used to send usage data to Zuora Billing using the Zuora Post Usage API or with the Active Rating Post Usage API. You map fields from a source to specific target fields, and Zuora Usage Record Forwarder then compiles and forwards the mapped fields accordingly.

The options are available under the Parameters and Configuration tabs. The Parameters tab allows you to set the values for how the Zuora Usage Record Forwarder would behave when communicating with the Zuora Billing system. The Configuration tab allows you to configure options to send the usage data and allows you to enable the use of Active Rating on the Zuora Usage Record Forwarder.

Parameters

Under Parameters, you get the Environment, Credentials, and Entity options to configure your connection settings.
