We have a requirement to turn off “Search” for Self Service users. After making the changes so self service users will not see “Search” in the top level tabs by unchecking the options "The Tab Is Available" and "The Tab Is Initially Visible", I get the following error:
Unhandled system exception: Universal Search workspace configuration is not found."
1. Login as Admin role and select Configure Application
2. Go to Build>> Charts and Graphs>> Dashboards and Edit the Dashboard for the Self Service role.
3. Under the Dashboard Objects>> Dashboard Information section, uncheck the "Search" Add-In and Save.
Users will no longer receive the error on Universal Search workspace when logging in as a the Self Service role.
