Request
path Parameters
invoiceKey
required
string

The ID or number of the invoice. For example, 2c92c8955bd63cc1015bd7c151af02ab or INV-0000001.

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 should not set this header.

Zuora-Org-Ids
string

Comma separated IDs. If you have Zuora Multi-Org enabled, you can use this header to specify which orgs to perform the operation in. If you do not have Zuora Multi-Org enabled, you should not set this header.

The IDs must be a sub-set of the user's accessible orgs. If you specify an org that the user does not have access to, the operation fails.

If the header is not set, the operation is performed in scope of the user's accessible orgs.

Request Body schema: application/json
required
emailAddresses
string

The valid email addresses you want to email an invoice to. Use commas to separate email addresses. Note: This field is only applicable if you set the useEmailTemplateSetting field to false.

includeAdditionalEmailAddresses
boolean
Default: false

Whether to send an invoice to the additional email addresses of the invoice account. You can set the additional email addresses in the Additional Email Addresses field on the account detail page from the Zuora UI. See Create a Customer Account for more information.

Enum: true false
useEmailTemplateSetting
boolean
Default: false

Indicates whether to email an invoice based on the email template setting. If you set this field to true, the invoice is sent to the email addresses specified in the To Email field of the email template. The email template is the one you set in the Delivery Options panel of the Edit notification dialog from the Zuora UI. See Edit Email Templates for more information about how to edit the To Email field in the email template.
