Bulk Edit Group Members - Username vs Full Name

I know you can individually go to each user in JIRA and add/remove them from groups.  However, when you wish to update a group and remove one to many users, there is a current limitation in the Bulk Edit Group Members screen.

It only displays the Username, not the Full Name.  We use our company ID as our Username, so you have to know a person's ID # to be able to remove them from the group.  Is there a way to make this screen/display show the Full Name instead of (or with) the Username?

Unfortunately, no. Currently there isn't a way to do this. I searched the Marketplace for any plugins that might augment the user and group management ability, but I didn't see anything.

It's possible that a workaround could be created through REST API, but that would take some work.
