Cronbachs Alpha, Composite Reliability, and AVE are not calculated for formative constructs but set to zero. If you have only formative constructs in your model, you will only get zeros for these indices.

Thanks, then if possible for the calculation, that I can change all my formative constructs ot reflexive constructs and make the calculation and this serves me? that is, the values are useful?

Thanks

If your constructs are really formative, then the Cronbachs Alpha is not usefull. That is why we are not reporting any results for formative constructs.
If you think your constructs are better represented as reflective, then model them as reflective and you will get the information for Cronbachs Alpha, etc.
