Modify the filename generated from BIX
we are using OOTB pxExtractDataWithArgs activity to generate BIX extractions for multiple applications.
We have a requirement to achieve the following
Append certain text in the file to identify from which application the file was geenrated.
Currently the date is getting appended using ddmmyy format, we want to append timestamp as well to the filename.
for example, considering the below filename BIX_Data_Admin_Operator_ID_ExtractOperatorID_191204_1
This provides information that the file was generated from DATA-ADMIN-OPERATOR-ID class on 191204 , but does not convey the application name for which it was generated. So how can we pass a text like applicationname that would help in differentiating between files generated for different application. Also how to include timestamp in the filename itself
Thanks for your help in advance

Surprisingly , I don't see the file specification tab when output format is csv file. Our dev env is pegacloud and we are using Pega 8.1.4 and BIX ruleset version 08-01-01. attached a screenshot below for extract ruleform.
When using BIX installed on cloud, file specification tab is not available in extract rule as users do not have access to cloud server file system. We have to configure a file system to to get all the extracted files there.
