Some of my users have identified their own username as an alias for the source code repository in Bamboo (Administration->Security:Users)...or so it seems. Some users have an alias equal to their own username, others have none. A few have experimented with identifying users other than themselves. They have done this so that they are informed when that user makes changes to the code which prompt a build in Bamboo. The problem is that these aliases then skew statics in the Authors section.
Now, each time somebody adds a user as an alias (spelled correctly, misspelled, obsolete or otherwise) it gets added to some mystical list deep in Bamboo and becomes an option in a choicelist when other users edit their profiles. This leads to more usage of this field and a viscious cycle.
Does anyone know how I can remove alias options from this list?
Does anyone know how I can prevent users from editing aliases, even on their own accounts?
