Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a Business Intelligence Exchange Extract in Pega Cloud. Do not delete the file in SFTP and do not allow SFTP user to override data in SFTP.
  2. Re-run the extract the next day. The file upload fails.

Root Cause

Files are overridden in Pega Cloud if they are not processed the same day because the names are not qualified by date.


Apply HFix-42831.
