Hi.

 

Our production tenant doesn't have the search bar at the top of the screen, like on can see in the this image: 

 

Is the search bar related to the Microsoft Search feature that appears to have status "Rolling out" (and presumably hasn't been made available in my tenant yet)?

Hi,
Yes, currently Microsoft Search Box is available in the top ribbon for all users in Targeted Release. In your production O365 tenant, currently, there may not be any user in your org who is added to Target Release.
As per the Microsoft 365 Roadmap, as of now, it says that Microsoft Search GA current status is Rolling out for O365 Standard Release and the estimated timeframe is mentioned as Q1 CY2020.
You could wait till the status gets updated to Launched in the Microsoft 365 Roadmap site for Microsoft Search GA - https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/microsoft-365/roadmap

Hope this helps. @kenneho
Thanks.

The search bar in Microsoft 365 is supposed to be generally available, but the reality is not that. Just be patient
