ZOQL, or Zuora Object Query Language, is a query language similar to SQL. It is used to construct query calls in Zuora’s SOAP API. Zuora suggests you have basic knowledge and experience with SQL in order to work with ZOQL effectively.

ZOQL’s basic query syntax is as follows: select field_names from object where filter_statements

When you first start building a metric in Grow, it gives an example query: select accountnumber from account where status = "Active" 

(Note: If you want to use that query, you will need to type it manually into Grow. It is only shown there as an example query.)

When writing a ZOQL Query, be sure to note the following:

  • All keywords must be written in lowercase.
  • ZOQL doesn’t support parentheses to indicate order of operations in a query. However, you can use the operators and  and or. (Note that the operator and takes priority in the order of operations over or.)

Zuora’s documentation of ZOQL goes into more detail about how to write queries, as well as the constraints ZOQL has. It is fairly comprehensive and easy to understand.
