I can no longer update search verticals a site level on SharePoint Online, the Edit button is no longer visible. enter image description here

I guess it is not a permission issue because it was working fine yesterday and nothing changed regarding permissions.

I can reproduce the issue on multiple tenants.

P.S.: I followed the steps described here: https://sharepointmaven.com/how-to-configure-search-verticals-on-a-sharepoint-site/

Am I missing something ?

  • What permission do you have on this site, Site Owner/Site collection administrator? Can you check on another site where you have site owner permissions and see if you are able to reproduce the issue? Commented Aug 24, 2023 at 13:58

    Try raising support ticket with Microsoft directly and report this behavior: learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/admin/… Commented Aug 24, 2023 at 14:16

You can't edit the default verticals - you can only enable them or disable them.
