Include a custom "user picker" field's data in a Slack message using Automation

I have a custom "user picker" field. I'm setting up an automation between JIRA and Slack that fires a custom message into a Slack channel when a ticket hits certain criteria. One piece of information I'd like to show in the Slack channel is the user selected on that field. 


I've added this to the Slack message that send: 

*Incident Commander:* {{issue.customfield_12066}}


but what appears is this: 

Incident Commander: 557058:41a2c14d-63c1-4cf6-94ba-7a22df13d6bb


How do I get the name to render?

I actually solved this one on my own shortly after posting this. I added .displayName to the end of the query: 


*Incident Commander:* {{issue.customfield_12066.displayName}}
