External users access to use People Search in O365
We have B2B external users in SharePoint Online that would need to use our people search-based corporate directory. This has been working before but recently external users have been seeing only "nothing found" view.
Thanks for your feedback! We understand your concerns. There are several perspectives to take into consideration here and we’re reviewing these.
I am facing same issue. I used SPO Search api to build corporate directory. As i shared SPO Site with guest or external user. Search API doesn't respond. Kindly share the workaround approach for same.
Please give guest users access to the people search results in SharePoint Online. All users need to collaborate and need the contact info from each other.
Would external User with Guest Access get access to the new Microsoft Search for Bing Connectors?
Has anything changed? Instead of "nothing found," I'm seeing an access denied error. My external users have access to the Search site and can run searches on Everything, but always get access denied on the People tab.
Several guest users in azure ad for the tenant and they all collaborate so to keep a people directory and not having to create lists and instead reuse information from azure ad this featur should be availible since it´s not only documents they search but contactinformation to other users in the site...

Same issue - any workarounds appreciated
We also have this issue. The people search is working for some external users, but not all.
Have the same concern, any updates on this?

It is crazy that when sharing files / folders in OneDrive and you start to type an email address or name to send the share to, that the search does not look at your People in Outlook.
