If I grant guest users rights directly to a SPO document library (after having disabled inheritance), the users will have the expected rights, but they will not show up in the list of users/groups with access to the library. This is of course a security problem, because you can't see (easily) who have access, but it also means that you can't remove or edit the user (in the GUI).
If I put the same users in a group, it works as expected.
Are you seing the same thing?

Hello Jakob -
Please refer to this doc https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-dire
See the question about SPO people picker:
Are B2B collaboration guest users visible in SharePoint Online/OneDrive people picker?
Yes! However, the ability to search for existing guest users in the SharePoint Online people picker is OFF by default to match legacy behavior. You can enable this using the setting 'ShowPeoplePickerSuggestionsForGuestUsers' at the tenant and site collection level. This can be set using the Set-SPOTenant and Set-SPOSite cmdlets, which allow members to search all existing guest users in the directory. Changes in the tenant scope do not affect already provisioned SharePoint Online sites.
Please run the above mentioned cmdlets to see the added users in the picker and let us know if that worked for you!

Thank you for the answer and sorry for the late response.
Is it possible to specify that all new sites that are created should have ShowPeoplePickerSuggestionsForGuestUsers set to True?

Hi - picking up on this for my need - I am not sure if I am going mad - running the below is not working, should it be?
Set-SPOSite -Identity https://domain.sharepoint.com/sites/testsite -ShowPeoplePickerSuggestionsForGuestUsers $true

In fact - the site does not have this property - do you need to set at tenant first?

I never did find the ShowPeoplePickerSuggestionsForGuestUsers feature on either commandlet. I did get it working this way, though I really don't understand why.
This works. After I did this, I also was able to find the user via their display name in the people picker.
