Exceptions and error codes for the designer

This article describes the error messages and exception codes in Azure Machine Learning designer to help you troubleshoot your machine learning pipelines.

You can find the error message in the designer following these steps:

  • Select the failed module, go to the Outputs+logs tab, you can find the detailed log in the 70_driver_log.txt file under the azureml-logs category.

  • For detailed module error, you can check it in the error_info.json under module_statistics category.

Following are error codes of modules in the designer.

Error 0001

Exception occurs if one or more specified columns of data set couldn't be found.

You will receive this error if a column selection is made for a module, but the selected column(s) do not exist in the input data set. This error may occur if you have manually typed in a column name or if the column selector has provided a suggested column that did not exist in your dataset when you ran the pipeline.

Resolution: Revisit the module throwing this exception and validate that the column name or names are correct and that all referenced columns do exist.

Exception Messages
One or more specified columns were not found.
Column with name or index "{column_id}" not found.
Column with name or index "{column_id}" does not exist in "{arg_name_missing_column}".
Column with name or index "{column_id}" does not exist in "{arg_name_missing_column}", but exists in "{arg_name_has_column}".
Columns with name or index "{column_names}" not found.
Columns with name or index "{column_names}" does not exist in "{arg_name_missing_column}".
Columns with name or index "{column_names}" does not exist in "{arg_name_missing_column}", but exists in "{arg_name_has_column}".

Error 0002

Exception occurs if one or more parameters could not be parsed or converted from specified type into required by target method type.

This error occurs in Azure Machine Learning when you specify a parameter as input and the value type is different from the type that is expected, and implicit conversion cannot be performed.

Resolution: Check the module requirements and determine which value type is required (string, integer, double, etc.)

Exception Messages
Failed to parse parameter.
Failed to parse "{arg_name_or_column}" parameter.
Failed to convert "{arg_name_or_column}" parameter to "{to_type}".
Failed to convert "{arg_name_or_column}" parameter from "{from_type}" to "{to_type}".
Failed to convert "{arg_name_or_column}" parameter value "{arg_value}" from "{from_type}" to "{to_type}".
Failed to convert value "{arg_value}" in column "{arg_name_or_column}" from "{from_type}" to "{to_type}" with usage of the format "{fmt}" provided.

Error 0003

Exception occurs if one or more of inputs are null or empty.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if any inputs or parameters to a module are null or empty. This error might occur, for example, when you did not type in any value for a parameter. It can also happen if you chose a dataset that has missing values, or an empty dataset.

Resolution:

  • Open the module that produced the exception and verify that all inputs have been specified. Ensure that all required inputs are specified.
  • Make sure that data that is loaded from Azure storage is accessible, and that the account name or key has not changed.
  • Check the input data for missing values, or nulls.
  • If using a query on a data source, verify that data is being returned in the format you expect.
  • Check for typos or other changes in the specification of data.
Exception Messages
One or more of inputs are null or empty.
Input "{name}" is null or empty.

Error 0004

Exception occurs if parameter is less than or equal to specific value.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if the parameter in the message is below a boundary value required for the module to process the data.

Resolution: Revisit the module throwing the exception and modify the parameter to be greater than the specified value.

Exception Messages
Parameter should be greater than boundary value.
Parameter "{arg_name}" value should be greater than {lower_boundary}.
Parameter "{arg_name}" has value "{actual_value}" which should be greater than {lower_boundary}.

Error 0005

Exception occurs if parameter is less than a specific value.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if the parameter in the message is below or equal to a boundary value required for the module to process the data.

Resolution: Revisit the module throwing the exception and modify the parameter to be greater than or equal to the specified value.

Exception Messages
Parameter should be greater than or equal to boundary value.
Parameter "{arg_name}" value should be greater than or equal to {lower_boundary}.
Parameter "{arg_name}" has value "{value}" which should be greater than or equal to {lower_boundary}.

Error 0006

Exception occurs if parameter is greater than or equal to the specified value.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if the parameter in the message is greater than or equal to a boundary value required for the module to process the data.

Resolution: Revisit the module throwing the exception and modify the parameter to be less than the specified value.

Exception Messages
Parameters mismatch. One of the parameters should be less than another.
Parameter "{arg_name}" value should be less than parameter "{upper_boundary_parameter_name}" value.
Parameter "{arg_name}" has value "{value}" which should be less than {upper_boundary_parameter_name}.

Error 0007

Exception occurs if parameter is greater than a specific value.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if, in the properties for the module, you specified a value that is greater than is allowed. For example, you might specify a data that is outside the range of supported dates, or you might indicate that five columns be used when only three columns are available.

You might also see this error if you are specifying two sets of data that need to match in some way. For example, if you are renaming columns, and specify the columns by index, the number of names you supply must match the number of column indices. Another example might be a math operation that uses two columns, where the columns must have the same number of rows.

Resolution:

  • Open the module in question and review any numeric property settings.
  • Ensure that any parameter values fall within the supported range of values for that property.
  • If the module takes multiple inputs, ensure that inputs are of the same size.
  • Check whether the dataset or data source has changed. Sometimes a value that worked with a previous version of the data will fail after the number of columns, the column data types, or the size of the data has changed.
Exception messages
Parameters mismatch. One of the parameters should be less than or equal to another.
Parameter "{arg_name}" value should be less than or equal to parameter "{upper_boundary_parameter_name}" value.
Parameter "{arg_name}" has value "{actual_value}" which should be less than or equal to {upper_boundary}.
Parameter "{arg_name}" value {actual_value} should be less than or equal to parameter "{upper_boundary_parameter_name}" value {upper_boundary}.
Parameter "{arg_name}" value {actual_value} should be less than or equal to {upper_boundary_meaning} value {upper_boundary}.

Error 0008

Exception occurs if parameter is not in range.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if the parameter in the message is outside the bounds required for the module to process the data.

For example, this error is displayed if you try to use Add Rows to combine two datasets that have a different number of columns.

Resolution: Revisit the module throwing the exception and modify the parameter to be within the specified range.

Exception Messages
Parameter value is not in the specified range.
Parameter "{arg_name}" value is not in range.
Parameter "{arg_name}" value should be in the range of [{lower_boundary}, {upper_boundary}].
Parameter "{arg_name}" value is not in range. {reason}

Error 0009

Exception occurs when the Azure storage account name or container name is specified incorrectly.

This error occurs in Azure Machine Learning designer when you specify parameters for an Azure storage account, but the name or password cannot be resolved. Errors on passwords or account names can happen for many reasons:

  • The account is the wrong type. Some new account types are not supported for use with Machine Learning designer. See Import Data for details.
  • You entered the incorrect account name
  • The account no longer exists
  • The password for the storage account is wrong or has changed
  • You didn't specify the container name, or the container does not exist
  • You didn't fully specify the file path (path to the blob)

Resolution:

Such problems often occur when you try to manually enter the account name, password, or container path. We recommend that you use the new wizard for the Import Data module, which helps you look up and check names.

Also check whether the account, container, or blob has been deleted. Use another Azure storage utility to verify that the account name and password have been entered correctly, and that the container exists.

Some newer account types are not supported by Azure Machine Learning. For example, the new "hot" or "cold" storage types cannot be used for machine learning. Both classic storage accounts and storage accounts created as "General purpose" work fine.

If the complete path to a blob was specified, verify that the path is specified as container/blobname, and that both the container and the blob exist in the account.

The path should not contain a leading slash. For example /container/blob is incorrect and should be entered as container/blob.

Exception Messages
The Azure storage account name or container name is incorrect.
The Azure storage account name "{account_name}" or container name "{container_name}" is incorrect; a container name of the format container/blob was expected.

Error 0010

Exception occurs if input datasets have column names that should match but do not.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if the column index in the message has different column names in the two input datasets.

Resolution: Use Edit Metadata or modify the original dataset to have the same column name for the specified column index.

Exception Messages
Columns with corresponding index in input datasets have different names.
Column names are not the same for column {col_index} (zero-based) of input datasets ({dataset1} and {dataset2} respectively).

Error 0011

Exception occurs if passed column set argument does not apply to any of dataset columns.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if the specified column selection does not match any of the columns in the given dataset.

You can also get this error if you haven't selected a column and at least one column is required for the module to work.

Resolution: Modify the column selection in the module so that it will apply to the columns in the dataset.

If the module requires that you select a specific column, such as a label column, verify that the right column is selected.

If inappropriate columns are selected, remove them and rerun the pipeline.

Exception Messages
Specified column set does not apply to any of dataset columns.
Specified column set "{column_set}" does not apply to any of dataset columns.

Error 0012

Exception occurs if instance of class could not be created with passed set of arguments.

Resolution: This error is not actionable by the user and will be deprecated in a future release.

Exception Messages
Untrained model, please train model first.
Untrained model ({arg_name}), use trained model.

Error 0013

Exception occurs if the learner passed to the module is an invalid type.

This error occurs whenever a trained model is incompatible with the connected scoring module.

Resolution:

Determine the type of learner that is produced by the training module, and determine the scoring module that is appropriate for the learner.

If the model was trained using any of the specialized training modules, connect the trained model only to the corresponding specialized scoring module.

Model type Training module Scoring module
any classifier Train Model Score Model
any regression model Train Model Score Model
Exception Messages
Learner of invalid type is passed.
Learner "{arg_name}" has invalid type.
Learner "{arg_name}" has invalid type "{learner_type}".
Learner of invalid type is passed. Exception message: {exception_message}

Error 0014

Exception occurs if the count of column unique values is greater than allowed.

This error occurs when a column contains too many unique values. For example, you might see this error if you specify that a column be handled as categorical data, but there are too many unique values in the column to allow processing to complete. You might also see this error if there is a mismatch between the number of unique values in two inputs.

The error of unique values is greater than allowed will occur if meeting both following conditions:

  • More than 97% instances of one column are unique values, which means nearly all categories are different from each other.
  • One column has more than than 1000 unique values.

Resolution:

Open the module that generated the error, and identify the columns used as inputs. For some modules, you can right-click the dataset input and select Visualize to get statistics on individual columns, including the number of unique values and their distribution.

For columns that you intend to use for grouping or categorization, take steps to reduce the number of unique values in columns. You can reduce in different ways, depending on the data type of the column.

Usually in this scenario, the column hitting the error is meaningless as a feature to train models. Hence, you can use Edit Metadata to mark that column as Clear feature and it will not be used during training a model.

Tip

Unable to find a resolution that matches your scenario? You can provide feedback on this topic that includes the name of the module that generated the error, and the data type and cardinality of the column. We will use the information to provide more targeted troubleshooting steps for common scenarios.

Exception Messages
Amount of column unique values is greater than allowed.
Number of unique values in column: "{column_name}" is greater than allowed.
Number of unique values in column: "{column_name}" exceeds tuple count of {limitation}.

Error 0015

Exception occurs if database connection has failed.

You will receive this error if you enter an incorrect SQL account name, password, database server, or database name, or if a connection with the database cannot be established due to problems with the database or server.

Resolution: Verify that the account name, password, database server, and database have been entered correctly, and that the specified account has the correct level of permissions. Verify that the database is currently accessible.

Exception Messages
Error making database connection.
Error making database connection: {connection_str}.

Error 0016

Exception occurs if input datasets passed to the module should have compatible column types but do not.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if the types of the columns passed in two or more datasets are not compatible with each other.

Resolution: Use Edit Metadata or modify the original input dataset to ensure that the types of the columns are compatible.

Exception Messages
Columns with corresponding index in input datasets do have incompatible types.
Columns '{first_col_names}' are incompatible between train and test data.
Columns '{first_col_names}' and '{second_col_names}' are incompatible.
Column element types are not compatible for column '{first_col_names}' (zero-based) of input datasets ({first_dataset_names} and {second_dataset_names} respectively).

Error 0017

Exception occurs if a selected column uses a data type that is not supported by the current module.

For example, you might receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if your column selection includes a column with a data type that cannot be processed by the module, such as a string column for a math operation, or a score column where a categorical feature column is required.

Resolution:

  1. Identify the column that is the problem.
  2. Review the requirements of the module.
  3. Modify the column to make it conform to requirements. You might need to use several of the following modules to make changes, depending on the column and the conversion you are attempting:
    • Use Edit Metadata to change the data type of columns, or to change the column usage from feature to numeric, categorical to non-categorical, and so forth.
  1. As a last resort, you might need to modify the original input dataset.

Tip

Unable to find a resolution that matches your scenario? You can provide feedback on this topic that includes the name of the module that generated the error, and the data type and cardinality of the column. We will use the information to provide more targeted troubleshooting steps for common scenarios.

Exception Messages
Cannot process column of current type. The type is not supported by the module.
Cannot process column of type {col_type}. The type is not supported by the module.
Cannot process column "{col_name}" of type {col_type}. The type is not supported by the module.
Cannot process column "{col_name}" of type {col_type}. The type is not supported by the module. Parameter name: {arg_name}.

Error 0018

Exception occurs if input dataset is not valid.

Resolution: This error in Azure Machine Learning can appear in many contexts, so there is not a single resolution. In general, the error indicates that the data provided as input to a module has the wrong number of columns, or that the data type does not match requirements of the module. For example:

  • The module requires a label column, but no column is marked as a label, or you have not selected a label column yet.

  • The module requires that data be categorical but your data is numeric.

  • The data is in the wrong format.

  • Imported data contains invalid characters, bad values, or out of range values.

  • The column is empty or contains too many missing values.

To determine the requirements and how your data might, review the help topic for the module that will be consuming the dataset as input.

.
Exception Messages
Dataset is not valid.
{dataset1} contains invalid data.
{dataset1} and {dataset2} should be consistent columnwise.
{dataset1} contains invalid data, {reason}.
{dataset1} contains {invalid_data_category}. {troubleshoot_hint}
{dataset1} is not valid, {reason}. {troubleshoot_hint}

Error 0019

Exception occurs if column is expected to contain sorted values, but it does not.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if the specified column values are out of order.

Resolution: Sort the column values by manually modifying the input dataset and rerun the module.

Exception Messages
Values in column are not sorted.
Values in column "{col_index}" are not sorted.
Values in column "{col_index}" of dataset "{dataset}" are not sorted.
Values in argument "{arg_name}" are not sorted in "{sorting_order}" order.

Error 0020

Exception occurs if number of columns in some of the datasets passed to the module is too small.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if not enough columns have been selected for a module.

Resolution: Revisit the module and ensure that column selector has correct number of columns selected.

Exception Messages
Number of columns in input dataset is less than allowed minimum.
Number of columns in input dataset "{arg_name}" is less than allowed minimum.
Number of columns in input dataset is less than allowed minimum of {required_columns_count} column(s).
Number of columns in input dataset "{arg_name}" is less than allowed minimum of {required_columns_count} column(s).

Error 0021

Exception occurs if number of rows in some of the datasets passed to the module is too small.

This error in seen in Azure Machine Learning when there are not enough rows in the dataset to perform the specified operation. For example, you might see this error if the input dataset is empty, or if you are trying to perform an operation that requires some minimum number of rows to be valid. Such operations can include (but are not limited to) grouping or classification based on statistical methods, certain types of binning, and learning with counts.

Resolution:

  • Open the module that returned the error, and check the input dataset and module properties.
  • Verify that the input dataset is not empty and that there are enough rows of data to meet the requirements described in module help.
  • If your data is loaded from an external source, make sure that the data source is available and that there is no error or change in the data definition that would cause the import process to get fewer rows.
  • If you are performing an operation on the data upstream of the module that might affect the type of data or the number of values, such as cleaning, splitting, or join operations, check the outputs of those operations to determine the number of rows returned.
Exception Messages
Number of rows in input dataset is less than allowed minimum.
Number of rows in input dataset is less than allowed minimum of {required_rows_count} row(s).
Number of rows in input dataset is less than allowed minimum of {required_rows_count} row(s). {reason}
Number of rows in input dataset "{arg_name}" is less than allowed minimum of {required_rows_count} row(s).
Number of rows in input dataset "{arg_name}" is {actual_rows_count}, less than allowed minimum of {required_rows_count} row(s).
Number of "{row_type}" rows in input dataset "{arg_name}" is {actual_rows_count}, less than allowed minimum of {required_rows_count} row(s).

Error 0022

Exception occurs if number of selected columns in input dataset does not equal to the expected number.

This error in Azure Machine Learning can occur when the downstream module or operation requires a specific number of columns or inputs, and you have provided too few or too many columns or inputs. For example:

  • You specify a single label column or key column and accidentally selected multiple columns.

  • You are renaming columns, but provided more or fewer names than there are columns.

  • The number of columns in the source or destination has changed or doesn't match the number of columns used by the module.

  • You have provided a comma-separated list of values for inputs, but the number of values does not match, or multiple inputs are not supported.

Resolution: Revisit the module and check the column selection to ensure that the correct number of columns is selected. Verify the outputs of upstream modules, and the requirements of downstream operations.

If you used one of the column selection options that can select multiple columns (column indices, all features, all numeric, etc.), validate the exact number of columns returned by the selection.

Verify that the number or type of upstream columns has not changed.

If you are using a recommendation dataset to train a model, remember that the recommender expects a limited number of columns, corresponding to user-item pairs or user-item-rankings. Remove additional columns before training the model or splitting recommendation datasets. For more information, see Split Data.

Exception Messages
Number of selected columns in input dataset does not equal to the expected number.
Number of selected columns in input dataset does not equal to {expected_col_count}.
Column selection pattern "{selection_pattern_friendly_name}" provides number of selected columns in input dataset not equal to {expected_col_count}.
Column selection pattern "{selection_pattern_friendly_name}" is expected to provide {expected_col_count} column(s) selected in input dataset, but {selected_col_count} column(s) is/are actually provided.

Error 0023

Exception occurs if target column of input dataset is not valid for the current trainer module.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs if the target column (as selected in the module parameters) is not of the valid data-type, contained all missing values, or was not categorical as expected.

Resolution: Revisit the module input to inspect the content of the label/target column. Make sure it does not have all missing values. If the module is expecting target column to be categorical, make sure that there are more than one distinct values in the target column.

Exception Messages
Input dataset has unsupported target column.
Input dataset has unsupported target column "{column_index}".
Input dataset has unsupported target column "{column_index}" for learner of type {learner_type}.

Error 0024

Exception occurs if dataset does not contain a label column.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs when the module requires a label column and the dataset does not have a label column. For example, evaluation of a scored dataset usually requires that a label column is present to compute accuracy metrics.

It can also happen that a label column is present in the dataset, but not detected correctly by Azure Machine Learning.

Resolution:

  • Open the module that generated the error, and determine if a label column is present. The name or data type of the column doesn't matter, as long as the column contains a single outcome (or dependent variable) that you are trying to predict. If you are not sure which column has the label, look for a generic name such as Class or Target.
  • If the dataset does not include a label column, it is possible that the label column was explicitly or accidentally removed upstream. It could also be that the dataset is not the output of an upstream scoring module.
  • To explicitly mark the column as the label column, add the Edit Metadata module and connect the dataset. Select only the label column, and select Label from the Fields dropdown list.
  • If the wrong column is chosen as the label, you can select Clear label from the Fields to fix the metadata on the column.
Exception Messages
There is no label column in dataset.
There is no label column in "{dataset_name}".

Error 0025

Exception occurs if dataset does not contain a score column.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs if the input to the evaluate model does not contain valid score columns. For example, the user attempts to evaluate a dataset before it was scored with a correct trained model, or the score column was explicitly dropped upstream. This exception also occurs if the score columns on the two datasets are incompatible. For example, you might be trying to compare the accuracy of a linear regressor with a binary classifier.

Resolution: Revisit the input to the evaluate model and examine if it contains one or more score columns. If not, the dataset was not scored or the score columns were dropped in an upstream module.

Exception Messages
There is no score column in dataset.
There is no score column in "{dataset_name}".
There is no score column in "{dataset_name}" that is produced by a "{learner_type}". Score the dataset using the correct type of learner.

Error 0026

Exception occurs if columns with the same name are not allowed.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs if multiple columns have the same name. One way you may receive this error is if the dataset does not have a header row and column names are automatically assigned: Col0, Col1, etc.

Resolution: If columns have same name, insert a Edit Metadata module between the input dataset and the module. Use the column selector in Edit Metadata to select columns to rename, typing the new names into the New column names textbox.

Exception Messages
Equal column names are specified in arguments. Equal column names are not allowed by module.
Equal column names in arguments "{arg_name_1}" and "{arg_name_2}" are not allowed. Please specify different names.

Error 0027

Exception occurs in case when two objects have to be of the same size but are not.

This is a common error in Azure Machine Learning and can be caused by many conditions.

Resolution: There is no specific resolution. However, you can check for conditions such as the following:

  • If you are renaming columns, make sure that each list (the input columns and the list of new names) has the same number of items.

  • If you are joining or concatenating two datasets, make sure they have the same schema.

  • If you are joining two datasets that have multiple columns, make sure that the key columns have the same data type, and select the option Allow duplicates and preserve column order in selection.

Exception Messages
The size of passed objects is inconsistent.
The size of "{friendly_name1}" is inconsistent with size of "{friendly_name2}".

Error 0028

Exception occurs in the case when column set contains duplicated column names and it is not allowed.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs when column names are duplicated; that is, not unique.

Resolution: If any columns have same name, add an instance of Edit Metadata between the input dataset and the module raising the error. Use the Column Selector in Edit Metadata to select columns to rename, and type the new columns names into the New column names textbox. If you are renaming multiple columns, ensure that the values you type in the New column names are unique.

Exception Messages
Column set contains duplicated column name(s).
The name "{duplicated_name}" is duplicated.
The name "{duplicated_name}" is duplicated in "{arg_name}".
The name "{duplicated_name}" is duplicated. Details: {details}

Error 0029

Exception occurs in case when invalid URI is passed.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs in case when invalid URI is passed. You will receive this error if any of the following conditions are true:

  • The Public or SAS URI provided for Azure Blob Storage for read or write contains an error.

  • The time window for the SAS has expired.

  • The Web URL via HTTP source represents a file or a loopback URI.

  • The Web URL via HTTP contains an incorrectly formatted URL.

  • The URL cannot be resolved by the remote source.

Resolution: Revisit the module and verify the format of the URI. If the data source is a Web URL via HTTP, verify that the intended source is not a file or a loopback URI (localhost).

Exception Messages
Invalid Uri is passed.
The Uri "{invalid_url}" is invalid.

Error 0030

Exception occurs in the case when it is not possible to download a file.

This exception in Azure Machine Learning occurs when it is not possible to download a file. You will receive this exception when an attempted read from an HTTP source has failed after three (3) retry attempts.

Resolution: Verify that the URI to the HTTP source is correct and that the site is currently accessible via the Internet.

Exception Messages
Unable to download a file.
Error while downloading the file: {file_url}.

Error 0031

Exception occurs if number of columns in column set is less than needed.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs if the number of columns selected is less than needed. You will receive this error if the minimum required number of columns are not selected.

Resolution: Add additional columns to the column selection by using the Column Selector.

Exception Messages
Number of columns in column set is less than required.
At least {required_columns_count} column(s) should be specified for input argument "{arg_name}".
At least {required_columns_count} column(s) should be specified for input argument "{arg_name}". The actual number of specified columns is {input_columns_count}.

Error 0032

Exception occurs if argument is not a number.

You will receive this error in Azure Machine Learning if the argument is a double or NaN.

Resolution: Modify the specified argument to use a valid value.

Exception Messages
Argument is not a number.
"{arg_name}" is not a number.

Error 0033

Exception occurs if argument is Infinity.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs if the argument is infinite. You will receive this error if the argument is either double.NegativeInfinity or double.PositiveInfinity.

Resolution: Modify the specified argument to be a valid value.

Exception Messages
Argument must be finite.
"{arg_name}" is not finite.
Column "{column_name}" contains infinite values.

Error 0034

Exception occurs if more than one rating exists for a given user-item pair.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs in recommendation if a user-item pair has more than one rating value.

Resolution: Ensure that the user-item pair possesses one rating value only.

Exception Messages
More than one rating exists for the value(s) in dataset.
More than one rating for user {user} and item {item} in rating prediction data table.
More than one rating for user {user} and item {item} in {dataset}.

Error 0035

Exception occurs if no features were provided for a given user or item.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs you are trying to use a recommendation model for scoring but a feature vector cannot be found.

Resolution:

The Matchbox recommender has certain requirements that must be met when using either item features or user features. This error indicates that a feature vector is missing for a user or item that you provided as input. Ensure that a vector of features is available in the data for each user or item.

For example, if you trained a recommendation model using features such as the user's age, location, or income, but now want to create scores for new users who were not seen during training, you must provide some equivalent set of features (namely, age, location, and income values) for the new users in order to make appropriate predictions for them.

If you do not have any features for these users, consider feature engineering to generate appropriate features. For example, if you do not have individual user age or income values, you might generate approximate values to use for a group of users.

Tip

Resolution not applicable to your case? You are welcome to send feedback on this article and provide information about the scenario, including the module and the number of rows in the column. We will use this information to provide more detailed troubleshooting steps in the future.

Exception Messages
No features were provided for a required user or item.
Features for {required_feature_name} required but not provided.

Error 0036

Error 0042

Exception occurs when it is not possible to convert column to another type.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs when it is not possible to convert column to the specified type. You will receive this error if a module requires a particular data type, such as datetime, text, a floating point number, or integer, but it is not possible to convert an existing column to the required type.

For example, you might select a column and try to convert it to a numeric data type for use in a math operation, and get this error if the column contained invalid data.

Another reason you might get this error if you try to use a column containing floating point numbers or many unique values as a categorical column.

Resolution:

  • Open the help page for the module that generated the error, and verify the data type requirements.
  • Review the data types of the columns in the input dataset.
  • Inspect data originating in so-called schema-less data sources.
  • Check the dataset for missing values or special characters that might block conversion to the desired data type.
    • Numeric data types should be consistent: for example, check for floating point numbers in a column of integers.
    • Look for text strings or NA values in a number column.
    • Boolean values can be converted to an appropriate representation depending on the required data type.
    • Examine text columns for non-unicode characters, tab characters, or control characters
    • Datetime data should be consistent to avoid modeling errors, but cleanup can be complex owing to the many formats. Consider using Execute Python Script modules to perform cleanup.
  • If necessary, modify the values in the input dataset so that the column can be converted successfully. Modification might include binning, truncation or rounding operations, elimination of outliers, or imputation of missing values. See the following articles for some common data transformation scenarios in machine learning:

Tip

Resolution unclear, or not applicable to your case? You are welcome to send feedback on this article and provide information about the scenario, including the module and the data type of the column. We will use this information to provide more detailed troubleshooting steps in the future.

Exception Messages
Not allowed conversion.
Could not convert column of type {type1} to column of type {type2}.

Error 0044

Exception occurs when it is not possible to derive element type of column from the existing values.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs when it is not possible to infer the type of a column or columns in a dataset. This typically happens when concatenating two or more datasets with different element types. If Azure Machine Learning is unable to determine a common type that is able to represent all the values in a column or columns without loss of information, it will generate this error.

Resolution: Ensure that all values in a given column in both datasets being combined are either of the same type (numeric, Boolean, categorical, string, date, etc.) or can be coerced to the same type.

Exception Messages
Cannot derive element type of the column.
Cannot derive element type for column "{column_name}" -- all the elements are null references.
Cannot derive element type for column "{column_name}" of dataset "{dataset_name}" -- all the elements are null references.

Error 0045

Exception occurs when it is not possible to create a column because of mixed element types in the source.

This error in Azure Machine Learning is produced when the element types of two datasets being combined are different.

User features or/and items are required but not provided.

Error 0056

Exception occurs if the columns you selected for an operation violates requirements.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs when you are choosing columns for an operation that requires the column be of a particular data type.

This error can also happen if the column is the correct data type, but the module you are using requires that the column also be marked as a feature, label, or categorical column.

Resolution:

  1. Review the data type of the columns that are currently selected.

  2. Ascertain whether the selected columns are categorical, label, or feature columns.

  3. Review the help topic for the module in which you made the column selection, to determine if there are specific requirements for data type or column usage.

  4. Use Edit Metadata to change the column type for the duration of this operation. Be sure to change the column type back to its original value, using another instance of Edit Metadata, if you need it for downstream operations.

Exception Messages
One or more selected columns were not in an allowed category.
Column with name "{col_name}" is not in an allowed category.

Error 0057

Exception occurs when attempting to create a file or blob that already exists.

This exception occurs when you are using the Export Data module or other module to save results of a pipeline in Azure Machine Learning to Azure blob storage, but you attempt to create a file or blob that already exists.

Resolution:

You will receive this error only if you previously set the property Azure blob storage write mode to Error. By design, this module raises an error if you attempt to write a dataset to a blob that already exists.

  • Open the module properties and change the property Azure blob storage write mode to Overwrite.
  • Alternatively, you can type the name of a different destination blob or file and be sure to specify a blob that does not already exist.
Exception Messages
File or Blob already exists.
File or Blob "{file_path}" already exists.

Error 0058

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs if the dataset does not contain the expected label column.

This exception can also occur when the label column provided does not match the data or datatype expected by the learner, or has the wrong values. For example, this exception is produced when using a real-valued label column when training a binary classifier.

Resolution: The resolution depends on the learner or trainer that you are using, and the data types of the columns in your dataset. First, verify the requirements of the machine learning algorithm or training module.

Revisit the input dataset. Verify that the column you expect to be treated as the label has the right data type for the model you are creating.

Check inputs for missing values and eliminate or replace them if necessary.

If necessary, add the Edit Metadata module and ensure that the label column is marked as a label.

Exception Messages
The label column values and scored label column values are not comparable.
The label column is not as expected in "{dataset_name}".
The label column is not as expected in "{dataset_name}", {reason}.
The label column "{column_name}" is not expected in "{dataset_name}".

Error 0075

Exception occurs when an invalid binning function is used when quantizing a dataset.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs when you are trying to bin data using an unsupported method, or when the parameter combinations are invalid.

Resolution:

Error handling for this event was introduced in an earlier version of Azure Machine Learning that allowed more customization of binning methods. Currently all binning methods are based on a selection from a dropdown list, so technically it should no longer be possible to get this error.

Exception Messages
Invalid binning function used.

Error 0077

Exception occurs when unknown blob file writes mode passed.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs if an invalid argument is passed in the specifications for a blob file destination or source.

Resolution: In almost all modules that import or export data to and from Azure blob storage, parameter values controlling the write mode are assigned by using a dropdown list; therefore, it is not possible to pass an invalid value, and this error should not appear. This error will be deprecated in a later release.

Exception Messages
Unsupported blob write mode.
Unsupported blob write mode: {blob_write_mode}.

Error 0078

Exception occurs when the HTTP option for Import Data receives a 3xx status code indicating redirection.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs when the HTTP option for Import Data receives a 3xx (301, 302, 304, etc.) status code indicating redirection. You will receive this error if you attempt to connect to an HTTP source that redirects the browser to another page. For security reasons, redirecting websites are not allowed as data sources for Azure Machine Learning.

Resolution: If the website is a trusted website, enter the redirected URL directly.

Exception Messages
Http redirection not allowed.

Error 0079

Exception occurs if Azure storage container name is specified incorrectly.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs if the Azure storage container name is specified incorrectly. You will receive this error if you have not specified both the container and the blob (file) name using the Path to blob beginning with container option when writing to Azure Blob Storage.

Resolution: Revisit the Export Data module and verify that the specified path to the blob contains both the container and the file name, in the format container/filename.

Exception Messages
The Azure storage container name is incorrect.
The Azure storage container name "{container_name}" is incorrect; a container name of the format container/blob was expected.

Error 0080

Exception occurs when column with all values missing is not allowed by module.

This error in Azure Machine Learning is produced when one or more of the columns consumed by the module contains all missing values. For example, if a module is computing aggregate statistics for each column, it cannot operate on a column containing no data. In such cases, module execution is halted with this exception.

Resolution: Revisit the input dataset and remove any columns that contain all missing values.

Exception Messages
Columns with all values missing are not allowed.
Column {col_index_or_name} has all values missing.

Error 0081

Exception occurs in PCA module if number of dimensions to reduce to is equal to number of feature columns in input dataset, containing at least one sparse feature column.

This error in Azure Machine Learning is produced if the following conditions are met: (a) the input dataset has at least one sparse column and (b) the final number of dimensions requested is the same as the number of input dimensions.

Resolution: Consider reducing the number of dimensions in the output to be fewer than the number of dimensions in the input. This is typical in applications of PCA.

Exception Messages
For dataset containing sparse feature columns number of dimensions to reduce to should be less than number of feature columns.

Error 0082

Exception occurs when a model cannot be successfully deserialized.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs when a saved machine learning model or transform cannot be loaded by a newer version of the Azure Machine Learning runtime as a result of a breaking change.

Resolution: The training pipeline that produced the model or transform must be rerun and the model or transform must be resaved.

Exception Messages

Error 0083

Exception occurs if dataset used for training cannot be used for concrete type of learner.

This error in Azure Machine Learning is produced when the dataset is incompatible with the learner being trained. For example, the dataset might contain at least one missing value in each row, and as a result, the entire dataset would be skipped during training. In other cases, some machine learning algorithms such as anomaly detection do not expect labels to be present and can throw this exception if labels are present in the dataset.

Resolution: Consult the documentation of the learner being used to check requirements for the input dataset. Examine the columns to see all required columns are present.

Exception Messages
Dataset used for training is invalid.
{data_name} contains invalid data for training.

Error 0134

Exception occurs when label column is missing or has insufficient number of labeled rows.

This error occurs when the module requires a label column, but you did not include one in the column selection, or the label column is missing too many values.

This error can also occur when a previous operation changes the dataset such that insufficient rows are available to a downstream operation. For example, suppose you use an expression in the Partition and Sample module to divide a dataset by values. If no matches are found for your expression, one of the datasets resulting from the partition would be empty.

Resolution:

If you include a label column in the column selection but it isn't recognized, use the Edit Metadata module to mark it as a label column.

Then, you can use the Clean Missing Data module to remove rows with missing values in the label column.

Check your input datasets to make sure that they contain valid data, and enough rows to satisfy the requirements of the operation. Many algorithms will generate an error message if they require some minimum number rows of data, but the data contains only a few rows, or only a header.

Exception Messages
Exception occurs when label column is missing or has insufficient number of labeled rows.
Exception occurs when label column is missing or has less than {required_rows_count} labeled rows.
Exception occurs when label column in dataset {dataset_name} is missing or has less than {required_rows_count} labeled rows.

Memory has been exhausted, unable to complete running of module. Downsampling the dataset may help to alleviate the problem.

This error occurs when the module that is running requires more memory than is available in the Azure container. This can happen if you are working with a large dataset and the current operation cannot fit into memory.

Resolution: If you are trying to read a large dataset and the operation cannot be completed, downsampling the dataset might help.

Exception Messages
Memory has been exhausted, unable to complete running of module.
Memory has been exhausted, unable to complete running of module. Details: {details}

Error 0141

Exception occurs if the number of the selected numerical columns and unique values in the categorical and string columns is too small.

This error in Azure Machine Learning occurs when there are not enough unique values in the selected column to perform the operation.

Resolution: Some operations perform statistical operations on feature and categorical columns, and if there are not enough values, the operation might fail or return an invalid result. Check your dataset to see how many values there are in the feature and label columns, and determine whether the operation you are trying to perform is statistically valid.

If the source dataset is valid, you might also check whether some upstream data manipulation or metadata operation has changed the data and removed some values.

If upstream operations include splitting, sampling, or resampling, verify that the outputs contain the expected number of rows and values.

Exception Messages
The number of the selected numerical columns and unique values in the categorical and string columns is too small.
The total number of the selected numerical columns and unique values in the categorical and string columns (currently {actual_num}) should be at least {lower_boundary}.
