Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open your instance 
  2. Go to Admin Center
  3. Search for "Manage Business Configuration" 
  4. Select Employee Profile > Standard 
  5. Note that there are some missing Standard Elements that have been configured in the Data Model:



If you find the "<role-name></role-name>" row in your Data Model, it means that there is no role-name given for element permission.

The standard elements which are referenced under the Standard Element section are not going to be synced to BCUI because of the missing value for the role-name.
