Previously in my filter, it shows user name which is very clear to tell who is included in the filter. But now it shows user id instead, I could not tell who is in and who is not. Please tell me how can I show user name in the filter? Thank you!
Hi Joey - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
Due to GDPR compliance, you will not be able to see the user name in the filter anymore.
You can copy the id and then go to Settings > User Management to see the person's name. You will need select a user first, then sub out the ID in the URL Address and hit enter to see who that user is.
This really doesn't help when trying to do bulk imports from a file, or like Joey states, when trying to ensure you have your complete team listed in a filter. There should be a way at least for admins to see actual user names. Having to type a user id leaves room for errors that will be more difficult to locate.
There are a couple work-arounds that I have found.
1. Type in the complete email address of the user. For example:
These are not converted to the ID.
2. Utilize groups from the admin setup. Create the groups you want to put in a filter and then use the "membersof()" function in your filter. This could be cumbersome as you probably don't want to create a group for every unique collection of people you have in your Jira instance. Method 1 should work for those smaller groups.
