We have seen similar issues with making changes in some of the .soy files. I believe as well some of the issues we've seen are with the same files that you have referenced above. For some of these we've gotten confirmation of product bugs that should be fixed whenever 8.0.3 is released. Kirthi Sekhar Anupoju and Saurabh Singh may be able to provide you more context or insight on the issues we've seen.
Thank you Andrew Chaney for bringing this to us.
Hi samatha choppa,
We found similar issue in satelliteNav.soy and display_utils.soy templates where we were trying to display username instead of real name for all the users to the application.As part of the our requirement, the user's real name (complete name) shouldn't be displayed anywhere in our community. In spite of the admin settings under manage profile and code changes in the template files, we are still seeing the real names in few places.
We have been acknowledged that there is a bug in Jive 8.0.0 - 8.0.2 that causes some customized soy sub templates to get compiled to the wrong location, causing file not found exceptions. There should be a fix for this that is expected to be released in Jive 8.0.3.
