  • The user tries to search for other users by People search from the mobile application.
  • User receives the below error in the mobile application ""Oops... There were no results."



  • This issue may be caused due to missing permissions for the user in Role Based Permissions.

  • If the user does not have these permissions granted then they will see the "Oops.. There were no results" error.
