Requirement for BIX query to have < instead of <=?



When running a Business Intelligence Exchange (BIX) extract using the -u or -U parameters, the Where clause of the query is '>=' and '<='.

For example,

pxUpdateDateTime >= ? AND pxUpdateDateTime <= ?

The requirement is for the BIX query to have '<' instead of '<=?'.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Run the BIX extract with -u and -U parameters.

Root Cause

According to the BIX User's Guide, this behavior is as per Pega product design.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior:

The -u <start date> is the only extract instance with a pxUpdateDateTime that is equal to or greater than <start date>.
The <start date> must be in the '20110823T164017.000' format, which follows the 'yyyyMMddTHHmmss.SSS' Java pattern.

Clear the 'Use Last Updated Time as Start' checkbox on the Filter Criteria tab of the Extract form when
using this parameter, as it does not override the checkbox setting.

-U <end date> is the Only extract instance with a pxUpdateDateTime that is equal to or less than <end date>.
The <end date> must be in the '20110823T164017.000' format which follows the
'yyyyMMddTHHmmss.SSS' Java pattern.
