Setting your commit email address

You can set the email address that is used to author commits on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance and on your computer.

About commit email addresses

GitHub uses your commit email address to associate commits with your account on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance. You can choose the email address that will be associated with the commits you push from the command line as well as web-based Git operations you make.

For web-based Git operations, you can set your commit email address on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance. For commits you push from the command line, you can set your commit email address in Git.

After changing your commit email address on GitHub Enterprise Server, the new email address will be visible in all of your future web-based Git operations by default. Any commits you made prior to changing your commit email address are still associated with your previous email address.

To ensure that commits are attributed to you and appear in your contributions graph, use an email address that is connected to your account on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance. For more information, see "Adding an email address to your GitHub account."
