User lookup now requires typing username in full

I have recently upgraded to 8.15.0


My users have indicated that they used to be able to use various user lookup functions within Jira and part type a name or username and have it auto complete.  But since the upgrade from 8.14.0, they now have to type a name in full.  


Here is a example of looking up a user in the permission helper:

1) Typing 'test' returns nothing



2) typing 'testtest' (the username), returns the user




Is this real or has it always been the case?  Is it a new thing with 8.15.0?  A bug or a feature?

I don't have 8.15 installed yet but have seen this before on a different upgrade.  My guess is that this is not a new feature and you should check this and see if this fixes the issue.
