Inactive users appear as active

I have few users in Jira who are being disabled (no site access) but when I check issues created by them (or anywhere else) their names appear as if they are active. Shouldn't they be somehow described as inactive?

This may confuse our users, as they are responding to the people and waiting for answer not knowing that they are disabled now.

(I used to be an admin for Jira installed on our servers and when I disabled an user there the addition "(inactive)" was added to username).

Hi Pawel - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I sometimes see Disabled in cloud for some fields and not others (user picker types).

Can you include a screenshot that shows an inactive user in a field and it is not showing Disabled?


Here it is. I have covered the last name in Paint to protect the privacy.

Also if I open a profile of that person I see no information that he has no access to site.

So what does it say for that User in the User Management section? 

It should look something like this:


Can you post that screenshot?

Gotcha. I would report that as a Bug to Atlassian here:

Please come back here and update the post with a solution once you hear from support.  :-)
