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.
- Visit the user's profile page.
- In the upper-right corner of any page, click .
- On the left side of the page, click Admin.
- Under Contributions data, click Rebuild.
GitHub Enterprise will now start background jobs to re-link commits with that user's account.
