Different between key and username in Jira



I encounter a problem that my program cannot find the user key.

        text: User 'JIRAUSERXXXXX' does not exist.

But actually this user does exist and was already added in our project space. (Of course, my agent account is Admin.)

And I can use this user's username to do some actions but the key is invalid. I have processed a lot of other users in our project space, but they do not have the same problem.

I found that almost key is the lower case of username, but this user's key is JIRAUSERXXXXX.

Therefore, I would like to know the difference between username and key in Jira.

Thank you.

See this post.
Apparently this is because of username renaming.
Can't find the link with cwd_user though.
In which table is this stored?



Is this caused by API or?

Thank you.
