BIX extraction is not happening



Business Intelligence Exchange (BIX) extract rule has a filter condition where pyID isEqual to a property on a node level data page, D_SetBIXExtractFields.pyNote

The extract rule is able to be saved without issue but when they run the extract even from within designer studio it doesn't actually find anything that meets the filter criteria.  

Error Messages

No error display, extraction is not happening.

Steps to Reproduce

Run extract rule

Root Cause

This issue was determined to be a product enhancement request. 

If the extract has a filter condition with  filter value referring to a property from the data page then during the extraction  that property value will not be loaded from datapage instead it always considers the filter value as literal.

This is an expected behavior of the extraction.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior: 

Extract from Pega 7.2.1 Help:

Enter or select one of the following comparison values:

  • A literal constant, formatted in accordance with the property type. See Constants in expressions for formatting help.
    Place a backslash character in front of any double-quote character that displays within the constant (\").
  • For a DateTime property, you can specify the symbolic value Last Extraction time. At runtime, this value is replaced with the date and time when the extract rule last ran. You can define a filter using this value as an alternative to checking the Use Last Updated Time as Start option described above, to perform incremental extraction based on any DateTime property you choose.

If the Condition field is set to IS NULL or IS NOT NULL, leave the Value field blank.
