How to resolve error "Replication-related issue: Cannot move asset lacking a pre-existing asset ID"?

Explorer
 In handler 'fvtags': Type = tags, Context = (user: username1, app: app_name, root: /dir1/opt/splunk/etc), Acting as = username1: Replication-related issue: Cannot move asset lacking a pre-existing asset ID: /username1/app_name/tags/host=hostname

An easy workaround is to open the knowledge object for edit in the GUI and click save. The asset id will get added and then you can move it around.

Engager

Just click on it as if you were going to change the tag, but instead of changing it just click save.

Ah, thanks !! I was in the "All unique tag objects" page which doesn't allow me to edit but I can do so in the "List by field value pair" page.

This is probably not related to this topic but is it possible to change the default permission when a user creates a new tag? At the moment, it is set to Private, I would like to change it to App.

Thanks again
