App connector & privacy settings

i have two fairly complex apps connected via the native bubble app connector.
i also have the bubble native API connector setup with exactly the same credentials and calls

For the app connector to get the data back i need to set the privacy to off…“everyone sees everything” in order to get data back…interestingly if i apply normal privacy setting i can only retrieve the Unique ID of the user,

where as for the API connector with same calls and Token it works just dandy.

am i missing a trick in the privacy setting for the app connector?
