For some of users when they create a pull request the field for pr events, author->username is suddenly missing as of 5/29/19 which is breaking plugins downstream. For other users this is not missing.

According to that the author field for pr has not be modified recently?

Anyone else experiencing this issue?

Hey Josh, BB PM here. As of October last year, the username field has been deprecated from all of our APIs except 2.0/user. We've been gradually phasing out those fields over the last several weeks to provide time for us to find any lurking issues as we moved to complete removal. As of this week, username fields should not be present in the Bitbucket UI or API.

Check out our deprecation notice here  and our migration guide here
