How to display a custom field User Picker in confluence Jira Macro and display the Full Name instead of the UserName?

In Confluence, I insert a JIRA Macro and select to display a custom field that is a user Picker.

Currently Confluence just displays the JIRA username and I would prefer the full Name as I can get if I ask confluence to display the Reporter field for example.

I experience the same for one of our customers using Confluence 5.4.4 in combination with JIRA 6.1.

Looks like this issue has been logged with Atlassian, but no movement has been made to fix/improve it.

According to them, it's blocked by https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-20361 which they've decided not to implement.

Frustrating as it takes away from the value of the JIRA Macro on the Confluence end...

I found this issue https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-31023

I voted for it and I suggest to do the same.
