The simple solution to fix this issue is by doing one of the following in the Web Template ZANALYSIS_PATTERN:

a. Removing the child reference of LINK_SETTINGS from TOOLBAR_RIGHT_AREA as this Link Item LINK_SETTINGS does not exist


b. Adding a new Link item named LINK_SETTINGS  inside the Container Layout Web Item named TOOLBAR_RIGHT_AREA .

4) Save this Web Template ZANALYSIS_PATTERN

6)Now, execute the query in question and the warning message about “Web Item LINK_SETTINGS could not be found in current Web Application” will not appear.

Please DO NOT make any changes in Default/Standard Web Template [Analysis - 0ANALYSIS_PATTERN].
