BIX XML output file name in a specific format



User wants BIX output file name to be like 2015-02-03T18:32:40.4321+10:00" or "2015-02-03T08:32:40.4321Z (UTC)" format.


Requested format cannot be set within Pega7 BIX during Extract rule execution. User can specify %t in the Output File Name, in the BIX Extract rule FileSpecification tab. This would generate the file name with current time stamp at which the Extract rule is being executed.

%t will get  the current DateTime like : 150302232750710(YYMMDDHHMMSSXXX)

To achieve user's requirement, an external shell script can used to rename the BIX generated file with suitable time format.
