How to create a Haplotype file from HaplotypeCaller

I am new to use GATK4. I would like to generate a Haplotype file (.bam or vcf file with haplotype information). I followed the Best Practice step till haplotypecaller.


gatk --java-options "-Xmx16g" HaplotypeCaller \
-R $REF \
-I ${name}.addRG.mkdup.recal.bam \
-O ${name}.g.vcf.gz \
-bamout ${name}.haplotypes.bam \
--bam-writer-type CALLED_HAPLOTYPES \
--do-not-run-physical-phasing false

However, the bamout output file is 0kb and there is not warning/error messages.
Is it a create a ${name}.haplotypes.bam bam file with haplotype information ?
or how can i generate a vcf file with haplotype information ("0|1" or with PS")?
