Is Search Service Application Mandatory in SharePoint 2013 farm


  • Hello,

    Is it mandatory to have search service application in the SharePoint 2013 farm.

    What if we delete the default Search Service application in the farm? Will it have any negative impact on the farm?

    Best Regards,

  • Hi

    it isn't mandatory. You can delete it ,You will save server's resources, but users will loose the possibility to search information.

    Please check more details about about the advantages and detailed informations about search service
