BUG: Sitecore 8.2.7 – TreeList – IncludeItemsForDisplay doesn’t support Guids anymore

A customer of us used a TreeList to display several products. Some products have special access rights, so we have to filter out restricted products and have to use the option “IncludeItemsForDisplay” to show only allowed products. This option was filled by a comma separated list of Guids.

After upgrading to Sitecore 8.2.7 the TreeList doesn’t show the sub items anymore.

After contacting Sitecore support the issue was registered as a bug in their bug tracking system:
