The errors occur because the Report Center is not in synch


The Report Center should be synched automatically however in some cases is not.

You can manually sync the reports information, into the search repository from the Admin Center, if the search does not return the expected results, as follow:

  1. Select Admin Centre
  2. Click on Reporting & Analytics icon & Select "Sync Report Centre Search"
    • access report sync.png
  3. Fill out the Job Name - Priority* & Configuration then select Start Sync
    *Priority used by the Job scheduler to determine the position of the job in the queue
    • job sync.png
  4. Depending on the workload involved and priority selected it may take up to 24h for the job to be completed.
    You can check the progress of the Sync Job only in provisioning via Monitor Jobs & Index Report Search Repository job type.

Note: If the above doesn't solve the issue you need to contact Support as additional steps from backend may be required.
