We use in Issues a customfield with a user picker. If i use the Jira Issue Macro in Confluence, the user picker field shows only the user-id and not the user name.
Is there a way i can show the user name instead of the user id?
Thanks for your tipps.
I did about 5 minutes of digging and quickly found that everyone is coming up with custom code solutions to this problem. My solution, for instance, is needed to display the full name on a report in confluence, but we don't really care if it shows up in jira (but it easily could by adding it to the screen if needed). I created a scripted field under admin->add-ons->scripted fields (this is a plugin you'll need, but pretty much everyone has it).
The Code is below
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("The Name of your User picker custom field")
ApplicationUser user = (ApplicationUser)issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField)
return user ? user.getDisplayName() : "No User"
Thank you for posting this solution. I was able to get the scripted field working in Jira.
However, it still would not display the scripted field in Confluence.
Can you please advise what type of scripted field you created.
We are using confluence 5.9, quite outdated, not sure if this is the cause.
I'm sorry for my late reply. I almoust forgot that, but but today i had the messages in the inbox.
Your scripted field work perfect, even if we use german special characters. That is a solution for single Projects where the users aks for. Unfortunately not all users asks at the support.
As we try to Keep the amount of fields as small as possible, it is also a bit pity that this results in additional fields. But it is a workaround.
Thanks for your help!
I came here looking for an answer to the same problem. I'm going to spend some time looking for an answer for something straight out of the box, but I know this can be accomplished by making a simple scripted field that pulls the information out of the user picker and then displays the name in a separate field based on the script.
I'll report my findings back here, whether I find something out of the box or develop a script
