prpcUtils.bat expose fails to run



Unable to expose columns using prpcUtils.bat. The execution is successful; however the columns do not populate in the database.

Error Messages

[java] [main] [ ] [ ] (internal.util.ExposeCols) INFO - Usage:
     [java] where
     [java] -n <column> The name of the column, if omitted than all columns will be populated.
     [java] -c <classes> Comma delimited list of classes to include
     [java] -C <classes> Comma delimited list of classes to include with descendants
     [java] -x <classes> Comma delimited list of classes to exclude
     [java] -X <classes> Comma delimited list of classes to exclude with descendants
     [java] You may specify a range of pzInsKey or pxCreateDateTime properties,
     [java] if you provide both, only the pzInsKey range will be used.
     [java] NOTE: if you provide the pzInsKey range
     [java] then then you may only provide ONE class with no descendants
     [java] (use the -c flag and provide one class).
     [java] -z <start key> Only instances with a pzInsKey equal to or greater than <start key>
     [java] -Z <end key> Only instances with a pzInsKey equal to or less than <end key>
     [java] -d <start date> Only instances with a pxCreateDateTime equal to or greater than <start date>
     [java] -D <end date> Only instances with a pxCreateDateTime equal to or less than <end date>
     [java] You may also indicate how many SQL updates should be batched before issuing a database commit.
     [java] The default is 1000 instances (index updates are not included in this count).
     [java] -s <number of updates to batch before commit>
     [java] You may also use multiple threads (this will only work if you specify more than one class)
     [java] -t <number of threads>
     [java] -r Also Rewrite indexes (may update BLOBs, index updates do not count towards your commit interval)
     [java] -i <reindex type> Type of reindexing to perform.  Valid values are 'full', 'pega', and 'nonpega'
     [java] -U <user> Reindex using this Operator's Access Group (defaults to Application Requestor)
     [java] -P <password> Users password.  Required if -U is provided.
     [java] -v Skip column population and reindexing.  Use this flag if you want to simply verify that the BLOBs can be opened.

Steps to Reproduce

Use -z and -Z arguments in and specify the pzInskey values with a space between them.

Root Cause

A software use or operation error.
The pzInskey values were not included in double quotes.
Observe this in prpcUtils log.

[pega:propertyparser] expose.startKey=YOUR_CLASS YOUR_ID
[pega:propertyparser] expose.endKey=YOUR_CLASS YOUR_ID


Perform the following local-change:

Add double quotes for values of -z and -Z arguments.
