BIX XML with -c has outer <Classes> tags but not XSD



When executing a BIX extract to XML using the -c flag the XML file has outer <Classes> </Classes> tags but corresponding XSD file does not.  
For example xml looks like this:

<PegaSample xmlns:xsi="">
<PegaSample-CustomerRequest xmlns:xsi="">


But XSD looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xalan="" xmlns:xs="" xmlns:fo="">
<!--Class taken from Extract -->
<xs:element name="PegaSample">
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><xs:schema xmlns:xalan="" xmlns:xs="" xmlns:fo="">
<!--Class PegaSample-CustomerRequest -->
<xs:element name="PegaSample-CustomerRequest">

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Run BIX xml extract using -c option.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. The -c option will include children classes. It is used to extract the data for each sibling class of the class (classgroup/non class group) on which the extract is defined and thus the output XML will have a series of Classes. The outer <Classes> </Classes> tags in the XML file are included as designed. The corresponding XSD file should include this required element.  


Manually updated the XML/XSD to match.  BUG-259481 will address the mismatch in future release.
