Setting your commit email address

You can set the email address that is used to author commits on your enterprise and on your computer.

About commit email addresses

GitHub uses your commit email address to associate commits with your account on your enterprise. 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 GitHub AE. 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 AE, 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 enterprise.

Setting your commit email address in Git

You can use the git config command to change the email address you associate with your Git commits. The new email address you set will be visible in any future commits you push to your enterprise from the command line.

Setting your email address for a single repository

GitHub AE uses the email address set in your local Git configuration to associate commits pushed from the command line with your account on your enterprise.

You can change the email address associated with commits you make in a single repository. This will override your global Git configuration settings in this one repository, but will not affect any other repositories.

  1. Abra TerminalTerminalGit Bash.
  2. Change the current working directory to the local repository where you want to configure the email address that you associate with your Git commits.
  3. Definir um endereço de e-mail no Git. Use qualquer endereço de email.
    $ git config user.email "YOUR_EMAIL"
  4. Confirme que você configurou o endereço de e-mail corretamente no Git:
    $ git config user.email
    email@example.com
