To enable the HCP Search Console, you select a search facility to be used with it. If you do not select a search facility, users cannot access the Search Console at all.

  • Affects namespace indexing options in the Tenant Management Console
  • Determines whether Search Console users need an HDDS user account in order to perform searches
NoteIf the Search Console is currently enabled, before disabling it, you should notify your tenant contacts. You should notify them again when access to the Search Console is restored.
