Renew a subscription

Renews a termed subscription using existing renewal terms. When you renew a subscription, the current subscription term is extended by creating a new term.
If any charge in your subscription has the billing period set as SubscriptionTerm, a new charge segment is generated for the new term.

Note: If you have the Invoice Settlement feature enabled, it is best practice to set the zuora-version parameter to 211.0 or later. Otherwise, an error occurs.

Request
path Parameters
subscription-key
required
string

Subscription number or ID

header Parameters
Idempotency-Key
string <= 255 characters

Specify a unique idempotency key if you want to perform an idempotent POST or PATCH request. Do not use this header in other request types.

With this header specified, the Zuora server can identify subsequent retries of the same request using this value, which prevents the same operation from being performed multiple times by accident.

Accept-Encoding
string

Include the Accept-Encoding: gzip header to compress responses as a gzipped file. It can significantly reduce the bandwidth required for a response.

If specified, Zuora automatically compresses responses that contain over 1000 bytes of data, and the response contains a Content-Encoding header with the compression algorithm so that your client can decompress it.

Content-Encoding
string

Include the Content-Encoding: gzip header to compress a request. With this header specified, you should upload a gzipped file for the request payload instead of sending the JSON payload.

Authorization
string

The value is in the Bearer {token} format where {token} is a valid OAuth token generated by calling Create an OAuth token.

Zuora-Track-Id
string <= 64 characters

A custom identifier for tracing the API call. If you set a value for this header, Zuora returns the same value in the response headers. This header enables you to associate your system process identifiers with Zuora API calls, to assist with troubleshooting in the event of an issue.

The value of this field must use the US-ASCII character set and must not include any of the following characters: colon (:), semicolon (;), double quote ("), and quote (').

Zuora-Entity-Ids
string

An entity ID. If you have Zuora Multi-entity enabled and the OAuth token is valid for more than one entity, you must use this header to specify which entity to perform the operation in. If the OAuth token is only valid for a single entity, or you do not have Zuora Multi-entity enabled, you do not need to set this header.

zuora-version
string

The minor version of the Zuora REST API.

You only need to set this parameter if you use the following fields:

  • invoice
  • collect
  • runBilling
  • targetDate
Request Body schema: application/json
applicationOrder
Array of strings

The priority order to apply credit memos and/or unapplied payments to an invoice. Possible item values are: CreditMemo, UnappliedPayment.

Note:

  • This field is valid only if the applyCredit field is set to true.
  • If no value is specified for this field, the default priority order is used, ["CreditMemo", "UnappliedPayment"], to apply credit memos first and then apply unapplied payments.
  • If only one item is specified, only the items of the spedified type are applied to invoices. For example, if the value is ["CreditMemo"], only credit memos are used to apply to invoices.
applyCredit
boolean

Whether to automatically apply credit memos or unapplied payments, or both to an invoice.

If the value is true, the credit memo or unapplied payment, or both will be automatically applied to the invoice. If no value is specified or the value is false, no action is taken.

Note: This field is only available if you have Invoice Settlement enabled. The Invoice Settlement feature is generally available as of Zuora Billing Release 296 (March 2021). This feature includes Unapplied Payments, Credit and Debit Memo, and Invoice Item Settlement. If you want to enable Invoice Settlement, see Invoice Settlement Enablement and Checklist Guide for more information.

applyCreditBalance
boolean

Whether to automatically apply a credit balance to an invoice.

If the value is true, the credit balance is applied to the invoice. If the value is false, no action is taken.

To view the credit balance adjustment, retrieve the details of the invoice using the Get Invoices method.

Prerequisite: invoice must be true.

  • If you are using the field invoiceCollect rather than the field invoice, the invoiceCollect value must be true.
  • This field is deprecated if you have the Invoice Settlement feature enabled.
collect
boolean
Default: false

Collects an automatic payment for a subscription. The collection generated in this operation is only for this subscription, not for the entire customer account.

If the value is true, the automatic payment is collected. If the value is false, no action is taken.

Prerequisite: The invoice or runBilling field must be true.

Note: This field is only available if you set the zuora-version request header to 196.0 or later.

creditMemoReasonCode
string

A code identifying the reason for the credit memo transaction that is generated by the request. The value must be an existing reason code. If you do not pass the field or pass the field with empty value, Zuora uses the default reason code.

documentDate
string <date>

The date of the billing document, in yyyy-mm-dd format. It represents the invoice date for invoices, credit memo date for credit memos, and debit memo date for debit memos.

  • If this field is specified, the specified date is used as the billing document date.
