Event Payload PR author username Field Suddenly Missing from json in webhooks?

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.

Check out our deprecation notice here  and our migration guide here
