Workaround 1:
Wait for the reset of the Daily job capacity then try to run the job again. It resets each day at 24:00:00 UTC (coordinated universal time).

Try the Tips for optimizing extract refreshes capacity.

Workaround 3:
Add more Creator licenses. For daily refreshes, the Daily job capacity is up to 8 backgrounder hours per Creator license.


The site has reached the daily limit/capacity for the backgrounder process hours for the extract refresh to run.
