About contributors and teams in GitHub Insights

A contributor in GitHub Insights is an entity associated with GitHub Enterprise data. You can edit and hide contributors.

Sometimes, the same person can appear as more than one contributor. For example, if one person has used multiple commit email addresses in Git, there will be a unique contributor for each email address in GitHub Insights. You can merge multiple contributors to combine all the data from one person.

You can also group contributors into teams. You can use teams as a filter on reports. For more information, see "Viewing key metrics and reports."
