Here is the XML. It is using a base search.

    <panel>
      <single>
        <title>Total devices</title>
        <search base="devicesBaseSearch">
          <query>stats count</query>
        </search>
        <option name="drilldown">none</option>
      </single>
    </panel>

 <search id="devicesBaseSearch">
    <query>| tstats latest(_time) AS _time latest(nmds_device_info.d_name) AS d_name values(nmds_device_info.c_user) AS c_user latest(nmds_device_info.m_ver) AS m_ver latest(nmds_device_info.cliver) AS cliver values(nmds_device_info.phone) AS phone latest(nmds_device_info.plat) AS plat latest(nmds_device_info.osver) AS osver from datamodel=nmdm_device_info 
        groupby nmds_device_info.c_id
      | rename nmds_device_info.c_id AS c_id
      | fillnull plat c_user phone value=""
      | table _time d_name c_user m_ver cliver phone plat osver c_id

I'm not an expert in this, so this might not be the solution, but have you tried moving the base search higher in the file so that it's defined before the item post-processing it is called?

Can you share the XML code for that panel? Is it trying to load a report or use the loadjob command? Or is it using a base search and a post-processing search, maybe?
