I get the following message when I try to create a very simple dashboard from the Create Dropdown in the Search App.
No matter what I call the dashboard panel and no matter which dashboard I add it to it gives the message:
"Search XXXXX cannot be shared because it already exists. Try using another search name in the previous step."
In fact, it does not exist. I tried it from scratch many times.
Okay. The error message you quoted earlier saved the saved search (not the DB) already existed. I'm guessing if you go into "Searches" in manager you'll see your previously saved search.
