In the JIRA Velocity email templates, how can I show the Display Names for userid's stored in custom fields?

Hello

I have in several places custom fields which are user pickers or multi user pickers. When I use the basic

$issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_10122")

line, the string that results is

userid(userid)

If the custom field is a multi-user-picker, then the resulting line is

[userid(userid1), userid2(userid2)]

Is there a way to instead display the Display Name of those users instead of their userid's?

Thank you

some utility code for diffrent fields, check this

#set( $issueCustomField = $issue.getCustomField( $customFieldKey ) )
#if ($issueCustomField)
#set( $issueFieldValue = $issue.getCustomFieldValue( $issueCustomField ) )
#if ($issueFieldValue)
$stringUtils.leftPad($issueCustomField.name, $padSize): #if ($customFieldType == "select")
$issueFieldValue.value
#elseif ($customFieldType == "multiselect")
#foreach ($entry in $issueFieldValue)$entry.value#if ($velocityCount != $issueFieldValue.size()), #end#end

#elseif ($customFieldType == "version")
#foreach ($entry in $issueFieldValue)
$entry.getString("name")#if ($velocityCount != $issueFieldValue.size()), #end
#end

#elseif ($customFieldType == "user")
$issueFieldValue.displayName
#elseif ($customFieldType == "multiuser")
#foreach ($entry in $issueFieldValue)$entry.displayName#if ($velocityCount != $issueFieldValue.size()), #end#end

#elseif ($customFieldType == "datetime")
$dateformatter.formatDMYHMS($issueFieldValue)
#elseif ($customFieldType == "date")
$dateformatter.formatDMY($issueFieldValue)
#else
$issueFieldValue
#end
#end
#end

Awesome, thank you. The multiuser code works! And I've saved the rest for later, for future use. Very much appreciated!
