Attempted to search usernames, email address were returned, desired the display name.

GET Request on the following endpoint: '${contentServer}/osn/social/api/v1/people?filter={"excludeHidden":true,"isEnabled":false,"isDisabled":false,"startsWith":"abc"}'

Search for usernames that start with 'abc'  -  returns email addresses for all the names.

Test Case:

Tested the following: /osn/social/api/v1/people?filter={"excludeHidden":true,"isEnabled":false,"isDisabled":false,"startsWith":"abc"} This returns the user because the email/name starts with abc. But if the filter is "startsWith":"xyz", there are no results. The display name and fullname is "xyz abc"
