  1. Check whether any portlets are hidden completely via a business rule.  Example:
    • Hiding all fields in phone information portlet will hide the entire portlet
    • This is not supported by the system
    • We should not hide an entire portlet
  2. Check whether the following box in back end provisioning is enabled
    • If so please disable the check box (Back end config changes will be done by support, please create an case)
    • "Enable Inactive Internal User Search Index Deletion (Contact SF Release team for deleting already existing internal inactive users search index )"
