Got colleagues to check the behaviour in v6.x of their Squidex instance and it was working for them, but then their relatively new v7.x version of Squidex also experienced this regression.

I also tried this with a colleague on my free cloud version and we could not see each other.

I will have a look tomorrow.

So often the case! Thanks for looking into it and fixing it so promptly. Will test it out to appease colleagues who noticed it missing and they they’ll have to wait for v7.4(?) to get it working.

Yes, but I think I will just make the other improvement for you for custom claims and then we could release a new version.
