This issue is arises when the universe CUID stored in the WEBI report does not match any existing universe CUID on the platform.

A change of universe CUID may be the result of a possibly incorrect migration process (based on name instead of ID).

This is not a 360Eyes issue, but a valid link between the document and the new universe CUID can be restored


In order to solve the issue, proceed as follows:
  1. Open the document in Edit mode.
  2. Go to the Query Panel / Properties.
  3. Select the universe to relink, and select the same universe it was previously linked to from the "Available universes" section (not from the "Used universes" section).
  4. Confirm the selection and save the report.
  5. Launch 360Eyes WEBI again (the WEAK link error should no longer be raised for this specific report).
