Azure External Identities : B2B Cross Tenant federation - Users are received in Target Tenant as ID's only - no names, no UID in AAD

Azure "External Identities" -
We setup up cross-tenant organziation with another source tenant. You MUST use either a group or uid - we used a group.
The organization sync'd but the 'users' are in ID format, not username. No entry in AAD users. I waited 24 hours - still nothings. The UID is not very helpful as you can't do anything just because you have this ID.
Is there an undocumented setting or approach to make these users - AD connected from Tenant A to Tenant B properly show up?

    Hi @Joel Scott , please let me know if you're still having this issue. With the information provided I suggest following this document about external identities. You may have something here configured wrong, or are not adding these users properly. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Best,
