Summary0024378: How can I change reporter_id to reporter's real name in Issue report page?

My client want to change reporter_id field to show reporter's real name.
I changed to show real name when mouse cursor is over reporter id, but he wants to change field to show real name.

I need to know where and how to change that.

Thank you.

reporter's real name in Issue report page

I don't understand what you mean with this.
There is not any reporter id or reporter name shown on issue report page.

This is similar to 0024139
Our security policy prohibits the direct mention of usernames in mails and guis, so we stuck to 2.11.1. until 0024139 is finished.

Dear mantisbt Team,

I'm sorry to say this, but this is a showstopper or Blocker, please built this back to the functionality in 2.11.1
Best regards,

The reason for this misdirection is - how to add users monitoring a ticket:
<<<The real solution to add users to a ticket is a drop down list like 0012557 >>>
If Realname is on - it shows realnames like Mantis before 2.12 in every User field
If Realname is off - it Shows the User ID

Similar to the filter selection for user
Simple and clean
Please go in this direction and delete 0023375 go back to the previous solution in visualization Realnames up to version 2.11.1 this was clean and improve adding a user to a ticket with a drop-down list

You are moving in circle with 0024436, 0024435 and all the other IDs currently

In order to see this topic you have to work in the corresponding representation - only user ID or only real name instead of user ID - then it is easy to understand

0024436 on hold please, 0023375, 0024435, 0024378, 0024087

Have a look at this the ID is visable with Realname=ON
This is like Realname off - and does not meet with usability or security guidlines if you have to do a mousover to see the realname while the user-ID is in front and visible

Thanks to atrol, this is solved in 0024139:0059859.

If we get that in release 2.15, we have a solution, a compromise and a basis for further development.

vboctor please wave 0024139:0059859 through!
