Pega BIX parameter -k for unique identifier always adds a sequence number
With BIX parameter -k I specified a own created unique identifier, so I can relate tables that are filled from two different Extract rules. Pega always puts a unique sequence number behind the identifier that is given as a parameter.
For instance: field pxExtractIdentifier gets value "20190128T154857.316 GMT1". The last character "1" is added by Pega BIX.
Is it possible to skip the sequence number that is added by Pega BIX?
The sequence number is set by the number of extractions that have run on the current date that the extraction is running on.
If you want to be sure of unique filenames when running the same extraction multiple times a day you could use a combination of either the %d or %t wildcard with the %s. If you just use %s then you can have file1, file2, etc. today and then these same filenames tomorrow.
