  • The instance has Ad Hoc reports without an owner. This happens when a user who created Ad Hoc reports had been deactived and the reports hadn't been deleted.
  • Some users have blank First Name or Last Name or with special characters in the system (User Data File)


  • The issue can be corrected by assigning owners to such orphan reports. The Manage Ownership functionality (Admin center) can be used for the same: More details on 'Manage Ownership'
  • Export the User Data File (e.g. Employee Export) and add a valid First and Last Name to all users
