CMS Search - Hitting GitHub API limit


We have over 2500 entries and whenever we use search it sends an API request for every entry. GitHub has a call limit of 5000, which is hit after 2 searches so the rest of the CMS loses functionality.
see BUG - Remove Netlify CMS search and filter functionality · Issue #558 · SSWConsulting/SSW.Rules · GitHub for more info

  1. Have we configured the CMS correctly? Is this an issue everyone is facing?
  2. Is it possible to disable search? We don’t want
