Hi Collins, welcome to the Community :)
In Bitbucket, you'll need to confirm the email address you enter as an alias. If that email address is not an email you have access to, you won't be able to use it as an alias. This is explained to Set email aliases.
Alternatively, if you use a Gmail account, you could create a new alias such as 'firstname.lastname@example.org' as explained here. If you have a different email provider, it might be worth checking if they offer options like that one so you can have different email addresses for different purposes, all based in your primary one.
Hope that helps!
I realise the reasons why email verification is usually a good idea, but given that a lot of github users will have set their git email as the github noreply address, it's somewhat inconvenient to have those show up as un-owned on bitbucket.
Given that we can link our account to github, it should be possible to recognize and automatically authorize any email addresses in the [randomnumber]+[githubUsername]@users.noreply.github.com format.
Adding a +bitbucket to a gmail address is ok, but doesn't really prevent thing like spammers as it's well known and easy enough to ignore/remove.
It'd be a nice feature if it could be added. Thanks.
@Ana Retamal Is there any chance Tom's suggestion could be implemented? I've got repos I imported from github in bitbucket, and now my only solutions are to not claim the email for my contributions or always have a popup saying my github no-reply email hasn't been confirmed.
Currently, it seems this can be done only per-repository, where you're a repository administrator. You can add a username alias in each repo, linking yourself to:
Your Name <1234+YourGithubUser@users.noreply.github.com>
as it appears in your raw commits. This method should work without needing any email confirmation. You may need to wait some minutes or hours until it's updated.
It would be nice if this could be done for the entire workspace or at least projects.
But it would be great if you could just link a GitHub account to Bitbucket Cloud and have that email automatically associated with you everywhere, like suggested. Atlassian could also advertise the feature, to motivate people to transition to Bitbucket.
