Why are users not able to see graphs in Dashboard after creating a field extraction?

Path Finder

Step 1: fields were extracted using separator (,) with Splunk's delimiter and fields name were like starttime,errordate,instance,proxy,filename .....etc

Due to some issue, separator was updated from comma , to pipe |.

Step2 : Deleted previous field extraction and created new field extraction using separator(|) with same name of fields.

Step 3: Permission is updated from private to APP wth READ only to everyone.

Step 4 : Again going back to existing dashboard i am able to view all graph with latest data.

Issue : other User not able to view existing dashboard graphs.
in some post it was suggested to update permission for field transformation, but i am not getting any field transformation which is created by me.

Please let me know if any more clarification required.

Thanks

Did you restart splunk on the search head or do a debug/refresh?

http://splunkURL:port/debug/refresh

Hit the refresh button and it will give you a list of all the configs that were refreshed (Some things will require a Splunkd restart)

Are you using the same sourcetype for the new field you made?

yes same sourcetype or index
As I can see the results that means query is working.
Issue is only with VIEW (Permission) for other users which I have given already in field extration

You need to have your admin restart splunk in the next maintenance window.
