User name scrambled in Freshdesk

We have an integration to Freshdesk (FD) and previously we could see the names on the Jira comments when they were updated to FD but now they are just a string of characters:Jira note.png

Is there any way one can allow for my user name to be shown?

The current way it requires me to go to the Jira note to check if it was meant for me or not.

This is associated with GDPR. AFAIK you cannot leverage any system fields (assignee, etc) in the clear. You could try to figure out how to leverage a custom text field.

Thanks for the suggestion, but then it means more work and fields to migrate to FD and connect to the comment.

agreed. I'm in the process of the final migration off of FD at the moment and glad to be down to a single tool.
