Hi Bharathi,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

When a user shows with a different name in Jira, it means that it's something related to their profile, because since 2017 with Atlassian account, admins can no longer manage users' information.

Can you please ask the user to go to their profile on and check how their full name and public name are set?

If you have any other question regarding this matter, please let us know.


Thankyou for the reply. The above didn't actually give me a solution.. but I guess there was some JIRA downtime and after that everything was back to normal.
