Updating Your Commit Author's Name

June 28, 2017

In order for your commits on your project to be linked to your Storehouse account, you'll have to make sure that the author name or email in your version control program matches your Storehouse account information.

If the information isn't correct or doesn't line up, your commits will still be recorded but may not be linked to the correct Storehouse account.  Having the incorrect author information doesn't affect your project's security or let other accounts access your project.

Updating SVN Authors

In order for your SVN commits to be linked to your Storehouse account, you'll need to make sure the commit's author matches your Storehouse username.  This is taken care of automatically and doesn't require any changes on your part to stay updated.

Update Git Authors

In order for your Git commits to be linked to your Storehouse account, you'll need to make sure your configured email address matches the email address used with your Storehouse account.  To update this, run git config user.email 'user@example.com'

Update HG Authors

In order for you HG commits to be linked to your Storehouse account, your name should either be set as the email address of your Storehouse account or in the format "Your Name <user@example.com>".  To set this, navigate to your project and edit the hgrc file in the .hg folder.  Update the lines below to match the username you'd like to use:
