Issue/Introduction

You have found that the "Sync to CloudSOC" operation in the Enforce Server never completes the sync, the status remaining as "Sync Pending".

Cause

Logs show errors with regard to the SPI request, from the MonitorController0.log:

Resolution

First, confirm your setup doesn't involve a prior DLP Cloud Detection Server for REST for which you also setup an Application filter for Web Security Services (aka "Cloud Web Proxy"):

Application Detection never changes "Sync Pending" status (broadcom.com)

If that does not apply, and the logs report the error in this article, you should open a case with Technical Support.
