Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to "People Search" at the top of the page.
  2. Search for any user by:  'username', 'firstname' or lastname.
  3. Username is visible and appended at the end of the employee's name
  4. Username is also visible from the Company Info Org chart



This is expected. You must enable a feature option in Provisioning to hide the Username in the UI


To solve this issue, it will require a change to Provisioning.
Please contact SAP for assistance if you do not have access to Provisioning, and refer to article 2183239 - How to Hide 'Username' from the UI
