Tasker plugin automation actions do not work in Macrodroid app

Tasker plugin automation actions don’t work correctly in the Macrodroid app.

Device: Google Pixel 7
Hue Essentials app version: 2.1.2
MacroDroid app version: 5.31.7

For example, from the Macrodroid action configuration, selecting the “Activate scene” action and selecting a room/group and a scene, and then testing the action, does not have any result. The equivalent configuration in the Tasker app works as expected.

I have also tried the “Toggle”, “Switch on”, and “Start automation” actions, and none of those seem to work either.

Help in getting this working would be appreciated.
