How to Configure the Google Data Source

Unified Self-Service integrates with Google Search to provide search results from Google directly within Unified Self-Service. Google Search is configured for you; no additional setup is necessary. You enable or disable this feature for all users by editing the Google data source. The Google data source includes a global local setting. This setting allows you to specify a country to focus your users search results. This setting is a global setting that affects all users; users cannot set this value individually.
