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.

To link existing commits to a user account, you may need to rebuild the user's contributions data.

  1. Sign in to your GitHub Enterprise instance at http(s)://[hostname]/login.

  2. Open the user's profile page in your browser. Profile page

  3. In the upper-right corner of any page, click . Rocketship icon for accessing site admin settings

  4. On the left side of the page, click Admin. Admin tab

  5. Under Contributions data, click Rebuild. Rebuild button

GitHub Enterprise will now start background jobs to re-link commits with that user's account. Queued rebuild jobs
