Dashboards & Visualizations

Why am I getting dashboard error "The lookup table 'GroupType' does not exist. It is referenced by configuration 'WinEventLog:Security'"?

New Member


I have a saved dashboard for a certain user, they get this error icon:

[SERVER_NAME] The lookup table 'GroupType' does not exist. It is referenced by configuration 'WinEventLog:Security'.

However, data still seems to be coming through for most of the panels. Also when logged in as admin, and look at the same dashboard, I don't see these errors at all? Which makes me think it's a permissions thing. I have been through Lookup table files, Lookup definitions, Automatic lookups and anything which mentions GroupType I have made sure the users group has at least read access.

any ideas?

you ever get this figured out? Just ran into the same thing today with a limited user account.

nevermind, figured mine out. A legacy custom app WAS referencing a GroupType lookup file in transforms that no longer existed. Removed, restarted, and fixed!
