Self-referential many-to-many relationships in gallery



I'm facing an issue with a self-referential many-to-many relationship. 


So I have an entity (let's call it entityA since I can't discuss any content), which has a many-to-many relationship to itself.

After relating 2 records together, the linked record is only consultable from 1 side.


So when imagine that we have 2 records from entityA: record1 and record2, which we relate through Relate(record1.EntityAs, record2).

When showing the linked records from record1 through a Gallery (items = record1.EntityAs), record2 successfully shows up.

When doing it the other way around however (items = record2.EntityAs), record1 is not shown.


Is there something that I'm doing wrong or is this feature simply missing?


I found a similar post around this topic from 2020 which was never resolved.
