Google is not picking site links search box on our site. We already installed schema.org markup using JSON-LD on our home page & it's working fine. 
Can anybody tell me why Google is not picking this markup or something missing?
Following code we've implemented:
<script type="application/ld+json">{ "@context": "http://schema.org", "@type": "WebSite", "url": "[REMOVED]", "potentialAction": { "@type": "SearchAction", "target": "[REMOVED}?s={search_term}", "query-input": "required name=search_term" } } </script>
We've also implemented same on so many other sites, none of them are showing with site links search box. 
Can anybody resolve this? Please help.

You probably haven't done anything wrong. Google simply has decided they don't want to display sitelinks for those sites (at least, not yet). They may change their minds in the future or they may not.


You can't force Google to do anything. Your schema.org markup is merely a suggestion, which Google is free to accept or ignore and use (or not use) as they see fit. There is no secret ingredient. Just because you put the code there, this doesn't guarantee you will get sitelink listings.
