File encoding is inconsistent for BIX XML extracts
File encoding is inconsistent for Business Intelligence Exchange (BIX) XML extracts. Some files are converted to ASCII, while some have the UTF-8 Unicode.
Steps to Reproduce
- Configure a BIX extract to produce XML.
- Enter values in the case with special characters.
- Extract the case fields in the configured BIX extract.
- Execute the extract.
The encoding set for the file is decided according to the characters (special characters or alphabets) in the file. Files with special characters are encoded as UTF-8.
Perform the following local-change:
Define the following tag in prconfig.xml of the BIX node,
<env name="initialization/pxtextextractencoding" value="ASCII"/>
