Display username and email in custom field

Is it possible to display the username and/or email in an field (custom or not)?

The user-picker for assignee or Reporter only shows full name which I find annoying.

If you really want to use the the JIRA native User Picker field, you just update the display name to contain the username as well... or maybe add the email address as well. I have done this with several JIRA instances that we support.

If you want to use a custom field, you may opt to use a "Scripted Field" and code something that will give what you need.

Thanks for the tip.

But unfortunately the solution for update the displayname is not possible since my server is connected to an Active Directory with ~170000 users.

I will have a look on a scripted field.
