Bug report

Describe the bug

For example: User List:

keystone.createList('User', {
  label: 'User',
  fields: {
    name: {
      type: Text,
      isUnique: true
    email: {
      type: Text,
    password: {
      type: Password
    userGroup: {
      type: Relationship,
      ref: "Group.users"

UserGroup List:

keystone.createList('Group', {
  label: 'UserGroup',
  fields: {
    name: {
      type: Text,
      isUnique: true
    users: {
      type: Relationship,
      ref: "User.userGroup",
      many: true,
    enableSystem: {
      type: Checkbox


const authStrategy = keystone.createAuthStrategy({
  type: PasswordAuthStrategy,
  list: 'User',

AdminUI app:

    new AdminUIApp({
      isAccessAllowed: ({
        authentication: {
          item: user,

Yes. In my testing the userGroup field only gives you the ID of the Group entry, not the actual group data.

Pinging @MadeByMike since he added the isAccessAllowed feature.
