How do general users access Awesome Bar in V13

Hi ,

It appears only users with System Manager role have access to the Awesome Bar in V13? Is there anywhere to ‘activate’ it for other users or am I missing something ?


Dear Wale,
Please go to “Role” doctype and configure it based on the required role.

did you check the steps? or is it work?

You can configure it for each role in the role doctype. Go to role list > select the role and check the “Search Bar” checkbox under Navigation Settings as shown in the screenshot below.


I tried this and it never worked. I wanted to hinder a role from using search bar, I unchecked and saved, the role was still able to search.
I am on :
ERPNext: v13.4.1 (version-13)

Frappe Framework: v13.4.1 (version-13)
I tried also to disable from the doctype “Company”, unfortunately Save button always disappears when I uncheck the Search Bar button.

Hello @michelle

As for @Fred1, I also confirm that although it is selected for a specific role, the Search Bar does not show when logged on as a user belonging to that role.

Any update on this please as i have tested your suggestion and it seems not working? Any other way of achieving this? I don’t want a user to access the awesome bar

Fred, try unchecking all permissions that have “All” role

I unchecked for all roles that I have selected and it works for me.Previously I only unchecked from only one role .I now discovered that was why it didn’t work.
