When trying to edit an existing component to set a user with uppercase characters in their username as Component Lead for a JIRA Component, an error "The user <username> does not exist."
Users without uppercase characters in their username can be entered without problems.
Selecting a user with uppercase characters in their username is possible when creating a new component.
