Nakisa 3.0 has just gone out of maintenance and cannot be downloaded anymore on the Service Marketplace. If you have downloaded it and are in the middle of installing or just starting I would strongly recommend that you upgrade to 4.0 SP1.
If you do come across an error please look through the SAP Organizational Visualization by Nakisa and SAP Talent Visualization by Nakisa forum where another customer may have already come across that same issue. On the Nakisa forum there are some very experienced consultants which provide great help to people configuring Nakisa products. If you can't get help on the forum or are directed to create a message, you can create a message under component XX-PART-NKS. Please provide as much information as possible in the initial description and include the build number of the module and logs.
When creating a message please read through my blog and check if error is in one of below areas.

1534815 How to test searching issues in Nakisa
There are many PA-TM notes that need to be implemented.
Most search issues are due to missing config in ERP so if you are on Talent Hub, follow note 1534815 and if you find that information is not being returned from FM HRTMC_SEARCH_OBJECTS then you need to do further research in Talent Management/TREX settings in ERP or create a message under component PA-TM.
As from note 1736779, most performance issues are due to most time spent in ERP. If you come across a performance issue you can either start a trace in the Admin Console of the Nakisa module or through ST12, here you will have collected an ABAP trace and SQL trace. I personally prefer the ABAP trace, sort the “net” column by ascending order and see where most time is spent. It will usually be a call to a table, most likely HRP1001. Ensure the statistics are up to date and that correct index is being used, do a note search for FM or Form.
For 3.0 the build number will begin with 70<SP>****, e.g. for SP3 is 703.
For 4.0 it’s 9<SP>****
The CDS log file is located at the /Log folder at the Nakisa installation and also can be accessed in the Admin Console under Log manager. This log is very important to attach when contacting SAP.
You can also perform a trace in Admin Console to see what calls were made to the backend.
