How to change username on Atlassian Answers

Hi, I setup a Bitbucket account with a username (different to my real name).

I then needed to ask a question and was linked to Atlassian Answers.

Atlassian Answers asked me to login in with my email address, rather than my username (which is different to my real name).

I posted a question and rather than showing my Bitbucket username (different to my real name), Atlassian Answers showed my real name.

I then searched how to change your username and Atlassian Documentation, Rename or convert an account says to change on the Bitbucket Account screen https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/Rename+or+convert+an+account

However, this only changes the Bitbucket username, not the Atlassian Answers which show my real name.

Please assist.

To get a different name shown on atlassian answers you have to edit your settings in my.atlassian.com(the Atlassian ID). Answers shows the Display Name and it has no connection with the name shown on Bit Bucket.

Thank you, that answer really worked!
