Zuora Usage File Forwarder

The Zuora Usage File Forwarder is used to send usage data in file format 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. Zuora Usage File Forwarder then compiles the fields into a comma-separated value (.csv) file or files to be sent downstream.

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

Parameters

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