      1. As admin – with firstname "Admin" and lastname "User", set fullnamedisplay (in admin/settings.php?section=userpolicies) to 'firstname lastname' (or in the example below 'language' which corresponds to the same in english)
        and alternativefullnameformat to 'lastname firstname'
      2. Save and verify in the footer it says "You are logged in as Admin User" and not "You are logged in as User Admin"

    Description

      I think when solving MDL-67672 the footer went omitted.

      If you set for example

      fullnamedisplay: firstnamephonetic,lastnamephonetic
      alternativefullnameformat: middlename, alternatename, firstname, lastname

      (in admin/settings.php?section=userpolicies)

      the name in the footer "You are logged in as…" uses alternativefullnameformat, and not fullnamedisplay.
