Scheduled Reporting but is Delivering Empty Reports


Hey there Splunkers, 

    We are running Splunk 8.0.1.  I have a pretty basic dashboard that contains a few panels with some KPI's  on it, nothing earth-shattering.  I can export the report and see the contents of the PDF with no issue; however, when I schedule the report to send the report as a PDF, the report is empty.  Any clues on what might be causing this?   As always input is most appreciated.  Thanks.

Another idea: test out the PDF delivery with a super simple dashboard just to make sure all is working. I suggest one panel.

Check the owner of the scheduled report has access to the indexes you are searching in the report. You can find owner in Setting >> Searches, Reports, and Alerts.
