Properties on blueprint component that are not flagged as "shown in request" do not populate values for roles of Business Group 'Users' or Business Group 'Shared Access.' This can cause downstream issues in provisioning as there a dependencies on Property Values for configurations.
Note: This impacts SovLabs configurations adversely because many are driven by logic dependent on Property Values.
