Here you can write a SQL query to select the data you want to see in Zuora. You can also use tables or views already in your data warehouse or models from data transformation tools like dbt or Looker. Here are some ideas of data you could select
The Lifetime Value of a customer
The end date of a user's trial
The date a user became active in your product
The number of key activities a user did in your app in the last 7/30 days
Once you have created your model, click Save Model.

Head to the Sync page and click the Add Sync button
In the "What data do you want to sync?" section:

Choose your connection and source (your model from step 3)
Next up is the "Where do you want to sync data to?" section.
Pick the Zuora connection you created in step 3.
For Object, select Account or Subscription.
Select which object you want to sync to
For the "How do you want to update the destination?" section.
Select Update Only
For the "How are source and destination records matched?" section.
Pick the mapping key:
For syncs to the Account object select either Account ID or Account Number
For syncs to the Subscription object select either Subscription ID or Subscription Number
Select the field from your model you want mapped to the identifier.
Finally, select the fields you want to update in the Mapper in the "Which Fields should be updated?" section. Here simply map the field from your Zuora instance to the column from your model.
