Guest Accounts not showing up in PowerApp

I have a PowerApp that pulls data from a SharePoint Person/Group field.  I need to be able to see all Members and Guests, but only Members are showing.  Guests are all registered B2B users in Azure AD and are visible in the Office365Users Group.  SharePoint seems to be preventing me from seeing them in the directory.   Any thoughts on why I cannot see this information?

Hi @remariu ,

To establish the connection, a Guest needs to log into SharePoint once - their name should then appear in the list to share Poser Apps.

I'm not actually trying to share the app or SharePoint list.  I just want to be able to select a Guest user from a person field.  Many of the guest accounts do not need to access SharePoint directly.

 

Hi @remariu ,

Unfortunately, they need to initially validate their connection credentials by logging into SharePoint - after that is done initially, they will "appear"

Thank you for the suggestion, but I still can't see any of the guest accounts.  Even those who have signed in to SharePoint.  

@remariu ,

I just used this in a combo box

Office365Users.SearchUser({SearchTerm:Self.SearchText, top:999})

and found every guest account I searched for - are you doing something different ?

The difficulty is that I'm trying to write this back to (or read it from) a Sharepoint list via a form in PowerApps.  I can see all users from the Office365Users connector, but this is not the same data that feeds the Person/Group column in Sharepoint.  So, the short answer is yes, I can create a combobox and see the data, but I can't figure out a way to use the data via the form.  It's further complicated as I need the ability to select multiple users and I'd rather not use a Patch function if at all possible.  This was an easy application until I realized that I cannot see Guest accounts within SharePoint.  Not sure why....
