Authorization is not working for SSRS 2019 Custom security extension

Please find environment details on which I am trying to implement Custom security sample.

SQL Server:- Microsoft SQL Server 2019 (RTM) - 15.0.2000.5 (X64)
SQL Server Edition:-Microsoft Corporation Enterprise Edition
OS:- Windows Server 2019 Datacenter 10.0 (Build 17763: )
SSRS:- SQL Server Enterprise (15.0.1102.861)

Question 1 :-
I am able to Authenticate the user but Authorization is not working and user is unable to get any permissions either on Folder or Reports. The error is "Could not load folder contents You are not allowed to view this folder. Contact your administrator to obtain the necessary permissions."

Question 2 :-
I tried to search for IAuthenticationExtension2 Interface under the SSRS 2019 library " Microsoft.ReportingServices.Interfaces.dll" but that is not available. Even tried to install the library from Official and Unofficial version from nuget package manager but the interface is not present in those libraries as well. Can someone share the correct URL to download the library that has IAuthenticationExtension2 Interface.
