What system are you using to provide user accounts to your Cloud site?

Do you have the right to change the display name on this account?

Hi @Nic Brough -Adaptavist- ,

 

i am an admin of the site.

i am using standard version and jira.

when i am using post to create a new user ,it is not taking the displayname.

It is actually taking the name name before the @ in the email address.

For example the emailaddress is tomjerry@gmail.com

The display name in the json that are posting is John Cena.

It is not taking the display name 

It is taking tomjerry as the display name in jira.

I am  using postman

But do you have the right to change the display name on the account?  Can you log into site admin and manually change the name?
