    Currently, the way to find this out is to go to the Account admin page. The default will be shown in the URL. I agree we should show this somewhere though.

    Hey Dusan,

    How's things man?

    I am afraid the Atlassian design guidelines make it so we do not show the username in the header. However if you hover over your avatar you will see the username in a tooltip.

    Cheers,

    Dylan

    Hi Dylan,

    I am good thanks, how about you? :)

    I am not saying the username has to be displayed in a header, but there should be some accessible way to find out the currently logged in user.

    Thanks for the tooltip idea, that definitely helps. But I am not sure if that's intuitive enough. I'll try to find and ping someone responsible for Atlassian design guidelines to see their opinion.

    Cheers Dusan
