Rebuilding contributions data

You may need to rebuild contributions data to link existing commits to a user account.

Whenever a commit is pushed to GitHub Enterprise, it is linked to a user account if they are both associated with the same email address. However, existing commits are not retroactively linked when a user registers a new email address or creates a new account.

  1. Visit the user's profile page.

  2. From an administrative account on GitHub Enterprise Server, in the upper-right corner of any page, click .
