We have renamed users to match LDAP usernames in preparation of moving to a Delegated LDAP authenticaton.
We have now noticed that transitions in JIRA are no longer showing the correct username for renamed users.
Please get in touch with us and we will be able to provide the appropriate screenshots.
Hi, in the Transitions tab, the Last Executor field is showing the old username regardless of when the ticket was created.
In the discussion of the ticket you linked me, Oswaldo mentions that the change history is immutable.
1) username was ABC when the issue was created
2) user made transition changes to the issue
3) user is renamed to DEF
4) user made more transition changes to the issue
RESULT: change history is always ABC
