Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log onto system and activate the SF mobile application. 
  2. In the mobile app - search for user A.
  3. Logout of the mobile app.
  4. Go back onto SF desktop version. 
  5. Mark user A inactive on the system. 
  6. Activate the Mobile App again and log on. 
  7. Search for user A who was made inactive and see the user still appear in the results/search history


This is expected behaviour by the system as the server that handles the mobile app does not recieve a signal to remove this from the search history of the app.
