XSD is getting generated with header and footer elements



Executing an extract rule (manually inside Pega) in Pega 7.2 generates the XSD in a different structure from previous versions. As such, these XSDs cannot be provided or injected into the existing reporting systems that processed the extracted data in previous versions. XSD is getting generated with header and footer elements.

User requires a fix to generate the XSDs without header and footer.
