There is a user called "User1" in AD as shown below:
Even though this user's First name, Last name, Display name are set, when fetched to Qlik Sense, it is still appeared as "User1":
In QlikView, it is also shown as "User1".
Why it is not showing Display name?

Note "User ID" column in Qlik Sense actually represents "User logon name(pre-Windows 2000)".
In QlikView, this user is also displayed as its CN:
In order to change display names in Qlik Products, CN Attributes need to be changed. Please consult directory administrators for this kind of requests.
