I have a Search Head that has direct customer access and I would like to prevent systems messages from appearing at the top of the screen on this search head. Occasionally we have system events like a forwarder that is mis-configured to send data to a non-existent index and I would like for this information no to be so prominently displayed at the top of the screen in bright yellow. Is there a way to remove this from the web UI?

There is, if you provide users with new views. You can either create a new app with modified views, or override the default ones with custom ones. Then you can modify the filter on the "Message" XML module, or remove the module completely from the view XML. You'll have to do this in each view to which the users have access.

If I were to make those changed to this search head, I would use a deployment server to do this, would the changed get wiped out on each upgrade to system apps like search?
