Validation returns an external_service warning message.

Operation references a service not present

The operation references a service that is not present in your current project.

Ignore this message if you know the referenced service exists higher up in your configuration tree.


  1. On the Canvas panel, select the component that contains the error.
  2. If the referenced service does not exist higher up in your configuration tree, you must either:
    • Add the service to your project
      Note: Reference-only services appear on the Canvas panel in faded grey. You can add them by clicking APPROVE SERVICE.
    • Select another service to implement the operation
