BIX generation by business user from UI
Looking to implement the ability for business user to create a single day BIX extract for any single specified date via the Pega UI on demand manually (not a scheduled job). The extracted files would need to be saved locally to the users profile and encrypted (win zip) before being saved to user location specified. User will only be permitted to select a single date.
Has anyone provided BIX generation capabilities to business users via UI before? Any tips, challenges?

Note that we can extract the data to the specified location (as given in the BIX rule) or trigger the pxExtractDataWithArgs activity (from 7.1.8 onwards). A file listener can be configured to pick it up from the location where the extract has been done and then zipped and encrypted via to the winzipaes library (available from 7.1.9) before writing to the specified user location via connect rules or Java file apis.
