Issue regarding date extraction

Hi I am new RASA and I am unsure if this issue was discussed on this forum before but whenever I input date as a slot as DD-MM-YYYY format, the extractor by default adds spaces between the dashes. Input : 21-02-2019 Stored as : 21 - 02 - 2019 This is a problem especially in passing date as a parameter for GET APIs.

I am forced to manually correct this but I am hoping for any tweaks to fix this permanently. Thanks.

Are you using spacy tokenizer in your pipeline? I encountered a similar case and found this issue in github.

Yes I am using spacy tokenizer. I think I understood the problem. But I haven’t figured out the alternative.
