This error message can occur when an offline sync is being performed.  Some possible causes and fixes are explained below.

Causes and Fixes

  • The number of records returned by a query exceeds the MaxFetchCount value defined in the DbPlugin.
  • An attribute that is needed for an offline query is undefined for the current user, and that is causing a RunawayQueryError message.
    • Test: Does the user also receive The specified attribute could not be found error message, in addition to the RunawayQueryError message?
      • Fix: Make sure that the attribute is defined in the appropriate view or role that the user is a member of.
