I would like to have the Global Community search bar only search the profiles of active users. It seems to search both active & active users. Any way to do this?



You can uncheck the checkbox Allow user to see other community user in Community Worksapces > Administration. Also remove View All Users system permissions from community user profiles and disable user visibility checkboxes in sharing setting.

Mark the External sharing of users as private and then create 2 sharing rules.

  1. For community users and share only active users with them.
  2. For guest user if your community is public.
  • I am trying to do what you said but am running into problems. I disabled the Allow user to see other community users. That worked as expected as my users can no longer see other community users. However, the sharing rule is not working. I created a sharing rule on the User object that says that a public group that contains my community members should have read access if the Active field is true. I have many other sharing rules that are working so I feel that I know what I am doing. Thoughts? I am wondering if the Community profile doesn't have access to the Active field. Aug 14 '20 at 1:15
  • I have customer community portal login licenses. Does that make a difference with sharing capabilities? Aug 14 '20 at 1:24
  • I think I got it to work. I needed to create the sharing rule on the community settings page. Thanks for your help. Aug 14 '20 at 1:32
