Spancat training score as zero

When I train the spancat it shows the score as 0. I could not find relatable answer for this to train.If anyone knows could you help me out. Thanks in advance.

Hmm, nothing in the config jumps out as incorrect.

With spaCy v3.2.2+, what do you see for spancat in the output of spacy debug data with your config and data?

@Jeychandar Did you manage to find what's wrong? I have a similar issue and I am yet to find a solution. The only difference I have is that everything apart from loss remains zero at every iteration. Debug data shows my data is alright, my labels are visible in the json, etc.
