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.
