Signavio has an ongoing issue where the Dictionary Solr index is showing the wrong information (e.g. showing the wrong number next to the categories in the menu and not showing entries in the category).


To rectify this situation, please contact SAP Signavio Support and ask them to delete and recreate your Dictionary index. As some functions of the Dictionary will be disabled during this process for up too an hour, please specify to Support a time that suits you for the re-indexing to take place.
