Can I get a $BITBUCKET_COMMIT_USER?

I'm reading the "Default Variables" section, and wondering if there is a way to get the username for the commit, such as $BITBUCKET_COMMIT_USER?

I need this feature so we can know who made the commit for our Pipelines set-up

Is it sufficient to get the user's name and email address as it appears in the repository? If so you should be able to get the information using a standard git or hg command, eg. for git:

- COMMITTER=`git --no-pager show -s --format="%an <%ae>"`
- echo $COMMITTER

If you need the user's Bitbucket username then I don't know of a simple way to get that. I don't believe that it is currently exposed as an environment variable. It may be possible retrieve it using the Bitbucket API, but there'll be some initial setup work to configure authentication.
