does Bitbucket support the use of a compound email address in the git config

We use the pivotal_git_scripts ( gem along with a .pairs file to set up a pairing session.

This modifies the git config so that the value is a compound email address. It would also be possible to do this from the command line as follows:

git config --global ""

Bitbucket doesn't seem to be able to resolve this compound email address to the individual contributors.

Is there a known solution for this? Aliases don't seem to solve it ...

Hi Ian, I'm afraid that's not supported in Bitbucket, as that feature you shared was built mainly to work with Github. 

If you'd like to have this in Bitbucket as well, you can submit a Feature request at
Hope that helps!
