Update an account

Updates a customer account by specifying the account-key.

Notes

  1. Only the fields to be changed should be specified. Any field that is not included in the request body will not be changed.
  2. If an empty field is submitted with this operation, the corresponding field in the account is emptied.
  3. Email addresses: If no email addresses are specified, no change is made to the email addresses or to the email delivery preference. If either the personalEmail or workEmail of billToContact is specified (or both), the system updates the corresponding email address(es) and the email delivery preference is set to true. (In that case, emails go to the workEmail address, if it exists, or else the personalEmail.) On the other hand, if as a result of this call both of the email addresses for the account are empty, the email delivery preference is set to false.
  4. The bill-to and sold-to contacts are separate data entities. If you select the Same as Bill To Contact check box during account creation, both the Bill To and Sold To contacts are updated upon updating either one because they point to the same contact record. In this case, if you want to update only one of them, you have to first create another contact and update the Bill To or Sold To contact of the customer account to be the newly created one.
Request
path Parameters
account-key
required
string

Account number or account ID.

header Parameters
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-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.
