Empty usage report for a specific journal

Description of issue or problem I’m having:
I am trying to generate a custom report for our journal but there is no data at all in the generated excel file. It works fine for the other 4 journals, however.

Steps I took leading up to the issue:
Statistics > Report generator > Generate custom report, and tried to download the data for abstracts or file downloads for November and December 2021, the Excels that are produced have no data

What I tried to resolve the issue:
I have checked and all the report plugins are enabled.

Application Version - e.g., OJS 3.1.2:
OJS 3.1.2

Additional information, such as screenshots and error log messages if applicable:

Hi @sushantv

Out of curiosity, are you using base_url overrides in your config.inc.php file? I see that this installation hosts more than one journal.

There’s an old bug that is now fixed in OJS where if you have base_url[…] overrides for journals, you need to have them for all journals or the ones that do not have them will not collect stats.

I’d also suggest looking in the metrics table in the database and see if there are records for that journal (you can search on the context_id column which is the journal id in question).


Hello @jnugent
That was it. Thank you :slight_smile:
