For Database Schema extractions, generate a DDL file to share with your database administrator (DBA) so that they can format the external database table for extractions.
- From the command line, begin the Java method with an initial Java call of com.pega.pegarules.data.internal.access.ExtractImp.
- Append the file path in which to create the DDL file and the DDL file name with the parameter and argument -x <filepath><DDL filename>.
- Provide your DBA with the DDL file and ensure that your DBA formats the target database by using the DDL file.
- Return to Running a BIX command-line extraction in on-premises systems to perform a BIX extraction process from the command for Database Schema extract file formats.
