Group Projects don't show up in IntelliJ GitLab Integration with Personal Access Tokens if user is not explicit added to the project

Problem to solve

Describe your question in as much detail as possible:

I’ve run into a strange behaviour of the GitLab API where user can’t see group projects with users personal access token if the user isn’t added to the project itself with the Maintainer or Developer role.

The user has Maintainer or Developer role in the group itself and it’s inherited to all projects.

Is this intended behavior of gitlab?
