BIX documentation inconsistant for prboostrap.properties
Upon configuring BIX from the command line, it is unclear whether or not the prbootstrap.properties file location is necessary in the extract script. The PDN states that this file is no longer necessary, and when we try to include the prbootstrap.properties file the PrEngine Code Version is not found. Which is the controling document the PDN or the documentation shipped with PegaRULES Process Commander. We are on Pega 7.1.6
Steps to Reproduce
The root cause of this problem is an error/omission in product documentation.
The explanation for this behavior is as follows: if you running BIX from the command line, the prbootstrap.properties is needed. I recommend that you use the one found in the PRPC 7.1.6 media under Additional Products/BIX/config folder and add your db connection informations. Also, in the User Guide, in page 19 we state how to use it.

In BIX 2.2 and BIX 2.2, prbootstrap.properties was not needed when used with PegaRULES Process Commander versions prior to 6.x
