Splunk IT Service Intelligence

Stpunk ITSI: Why I'm getting an error "Invalid data model specification" when I'm trying to add KPIs to a service?

Hello,
I'm adding some KPIs (Host OS, CPU load for instance), and when I'm trying to save service, I'm getting the following error message:

Service not saved. Details: Invalid datamodel specification in service "1" for kpi "generic test kpi". Datamodel info: {"owner_field": "Performance.CPU.cpu_load_percent", "object": "CPU", "datamodel": "Host_OS", "field": "cpu_load_percent"}

What's the problem with the datamodel? How can I fix it?

Yes, so was the name of the KPI, as you see, this error prevents me from creating it.
