BIX Extraction - Delimiter Issue in Manifest files



Business Intelligence Exchange (BIX) extraction is scheduled in an agent with comma (,) as the delimiter. 
When Extract files are  generated, the manifest files have a trailing space after the comma delimiter. However, other files do not have the trailing space.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create an Extract rule with CSV as the output and include manifest.
  2. Invoke the pxExtractDataWithArgs using '-l' as an argument (pyargs) separated by a single character delimiter  "-l \";\"".
  3. Run the activity.

Root Cause

Command line option -l that is used to specify the delimiter is considered only for CSV output files and not used by the generated manifest files for CSV output format.

Default delimiter used for manifest files is a comma followed by a space (', ').


An enhancement request, FDBK-29366, is created for consideration by Pega Product Management.
