First, the current set up:

 

1. O365 Admin Center > Settings > Security & privacy > Sharing > let users add new guests to the organization is set to yes

2. OneDrive Admin Center > Sharing > users can create shareable links that don't require sign-in

 

The need:

Because only a couple users need to be able to create anonymous sharing links, we are setting external sharing settings on a user by user basis. Everyone else should be able to create links to share with authenticated guests.

 

The issue:

Adjusting the OneDrive external sharing settings for each user are not being saved. I click the radio button to the 1st option to allow authenticated guests and save. I go back a few minutes later and it's reverted back to the 3rd radio button that only allows sharing with guests that are already in AD.

 

This has been happening for over a week. (PowerShell was run previously and those settings were not saved either)

 

Any ideas appreciated.

My suggestion would be to try PowerShell, but since you've already covered that, go ahead an open a support case.
