How can i remove the deactivated user name from browse

Hi friends,

In my on Demand JIRA I have deactivated the one user(Removed from groups and Application Access). Then i am trying to create the issue, in the system field(eg. Assignee field) field when i browse the name for assignee field, the deacitivate user name does not displayed. But in the custom field (eg. Additonal notification field created by us for our purpose as a multi user selection) when i browse the names it is shows deacitivated user name also.

How can i avoid that one.Please share your thougts.

Thanks in advance,

Karthik A.

But in the custom field

What type of custom field is this? Is this from a JIRA add on or is this the userpicker?

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your updates, it is multi userpicker field.
