External Guest IDs Search not working, in SharePoint Online

Frequent Contributor

My external SharePoint online guest IDs have lost the ability to do a SharePoint search.  Hoping someone will have some pointers.


The SEARCH in the top middle bar does nothing. The search top left (only see this search for guest IDs) returns message that item might not exist. I first noticed this on 11/17/2021, but not sure when it started. The guest-ID-search-function did work at one time for external IDs.

These are external email IDs that were given access to a folder in SharePoint online.  These IDs do not show in O365 or Azure, (guest or otherwise).

I get the same results in Edge and Chrome.
