I am running Sitecore 9 update 2 locally and trying to work with the experience profile. In the analytics, I see activity data but when I go to the profile screen I get no records. All my visits so far are anonymous. I tried to rebuild the reporting database and get this error.
Connection string used by aggregation/reportingStorageManager/ReportingTargetConfigPath is missing.
Based on my reading rebuilding the reporting database is the first step in troubleshooting this but I am not sure how to solve this error. I have searched the showconfig.aspx results but nothing in there is helping me.
After digging into this more it sounds like a secondary reporting database should not be needed for this screen to work. So the error about rebuilding indexes is really not related as the secondary is needed for the rebuild but not for the experience profile screen.
As the comments call out I did have an error in the xconnect and application logs about access to the Global counter. I have resolved that and now both logs show no errors. There are also no console errors being shown. Here are the logs I have checked.
xConnect web app: xconnect log file
Application webapp : log, Exm, Search, Crawling, Publishing
Automation server log
