- How can users not see the profile photos when searching for other users in search in different module pages?
- Configure Role-Based Permissions to control the auto-complete search results of Search in module pages so that the information is provided on a need-to-know basis.
- NOTE: This permission does NOT impact behavior of the People Search in the global page header

Reproducing the Issue
- Photos are visible when searching for users in search in different module pages.
- Photos in search do not respect the RBP permission Employee Data > Photo > View/Edit
As part of the 1911 enhancement, administrators can now restrict a user's ability to view another user's photo in module page search via RBP permissions. This will align with certain companies' security policies.
How to enable the functionality?
- Navigate to Admin Center > Manage Permission Role
- Select role > click "Permission..."
- Under User Permissions, select Employee Data > Photo
- Enable the View and Edit switches for users to see the photos in search and PP3; and vice versa
If a user has NO permission to see the photo (via Employee Data > Photo > View/Edit), they will only see the default photo.
Where is this functionality available in?
IMPORTANT NOTE: This permission does NOT impact behavior of the People Search in the global page header, which is controlled by a company-level configuration setting and not by role-based permissions.
