Hi Divya, 

From this error it appears the search indexes may have become corrupted. Try following the steps in the following article to remove and rebuild them to see if this helps. 




Hi David,

Thanks for help.

We have done the steps which you suggested in above link. We are able to see the projects and users, but not able to see the issues data.

Note: Recently we have upgraded the licence key from evaluation license to Starter License(Paid).

Please help !

Thanks David for your help.  Reindexing solved our issues.
