2869706 - Error "Objects CUBE:<CUID Value> might already be deleted or did not exist in the system" when importing in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


When importing content to a SAC tenant you get one of the following errors:

  • "Objects CUBE:<CUID value> might already be deleted or did not exist in the system."
  • "Object  imported and created Data was imported to object <Object value>. Sorry, the import of data tables didn’t work."


  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Export content from source system according to Exporting Content to a .tgz File 
  2. Import content to target system as writted under Importing Content from a .tgz File
  3. Note that some of the objects (Story, Wrangler...) get the above error.


The source model is not attached to the exported TGZ file, i.e. it hasn't been moved to the "Public" folder before export.


We can offer two possible solutions for you:

  • If the model is moved public folder the export will include the model too, thereby the import will succeed. 
  • Re-point the widgets to a model which is stored in the public folder instead of the private one.

How to find the missing model/wrangler:

  1. Go to Security/Activities menu and paste the ID from the error message into the search.
  2. Note that the ID in the error message is duplicated, make sure to paste it once.
  3. Once the name of the missing model is identified, search by the name under the system folder.
  4. Locate the model and move it to the public folder using the Move to function.

    Note:Wrangler object is a hidden object attached to the model you created from data source, we use this object to keep track of the data source that created this model so we can support function like 'Rebuild Model' afterwards. Missing the wrangler object itself won't impact major functionalities of model/story.
