      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Server. Using JIRA Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Description

      When a issue is assigned to a user, the history tab record the user display name and user_key. As a result, when the user changed the username, JIRA issue history tab will still be showing user_key.

      Step to reproduce

      1. Create a user(lets say 'test') and using the user, perform certain actions on any issue (like adding issue links, comments etc)
      2. Notice that the issue history tab shows changes made by this user 'test'.
      3. Now rename this user from administration console giving it a new username (say 'testabc').
      4. Now make some more changes to the issue using this renamed user.
      5. Now go to the history tab and notice that the old username 'test' is still being used. The new username 'testabc' is never used in the history tab.

      Suggestion

      • Instead of using user_key (which is not editable via UI, issue's history tab should show username instead, as it's more relevant to the users.
