Row Level Security "Test as role" doesn't populate user name

I was wondering if anyone's aware of a recent change to the Test As Role functionaity in PowerBI Service.

 

Up until the end of last month, I've been able to test a user's role by entering specific name/email address.  They are a member of that role.  This was working just fine, but two days ago I created a new role and added new members to it.  When I tried testing their role with one of the user's names their name doesn't populate into the SELECT PERSON text box. I then tested the first role that was already set up using the same person I used last month and their name also won't populate anymore.

 

 

This now seems like a bug to me but wanted to see if anyone else has experienced it lately.

 

Thanks in advance!

Well hopefully someone from the Microsoft team will jump in and explain what's going on.  It's really frustrating coz now you can't test the roles that you created.
