How to display user ID and full name of user picker?

I would like to display username and full name of an user picker field in Built-In Scripts custom email. If I use:

<% out << issue.getCustomFieldValue(componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Team Lead")) %>

I get username twice: username(username)

Also I would like to display the full name of the user in my custom user picker field.

Any suggestions?

Try this out.

<% out << issue.getCustomFieldValue(componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Team Lead")).getDisplayName() %>


Thank you, full name works perfectly!

Do you know, why I get the username twice?

I am not sure why it writes two times the name. I think its the user_name (user_name_lower)

Right method for user name:

<% out << issue.getCustomFieldValue(componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Name")).getName() %>

Where we need to write this code to get full name in the field
