Hi Erik,

Bitbucket Server does not have the same "Username aliases" feature that Bitbucket Cloud does at the moment. There is an open feature request at BSERV-4603 Committer alias management where we're tracking this, but it's not something that's currently on our roadmap.

Bitbucket Server does support Git's .mapmap which allows you to map multiple commit authors to one. You can read more about this at


 .mailmap worked like a charm !!! :-)
We had almost 20 years of old cvs managed code which we just converted to git. Mapping those unix style ids makes it much easier to see in Bitbucket Server.

Thanks for quick support
