Generating a DDL file for command-line database schema extractions
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.
This content only applies to on-premises systems and is not supported in Pega Cloud environments.
- 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
com.pega.pegarules.pub.PegaRULES com.pega.pegarules.data.internal.access.ExtractImpl -I ./XMLpath External_XML
- 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.
