That's from the Yet Another Commit Checker add-on.  One of its options is checking to make sure the AUTHOR and COMMITTER metadata in the commit objects you're pushing match the name and email-address configured for you on the Bitbucket server.

If you do a "git log --pretty=fuller @{u}..HEAD" it will probably show you the problem.   Here's what that command shows for me:


commit 115a14ccad19351ede7ded8d708aeab83263ee1c
Author: G. Sylvie Davies <sylvie@bit-booster.com>
AuthorDate: Tue Oct 31 00:22:35 2017 -0700
Commit: G. Sylvie Davies <sylvie@bit-booster.com>
CommitDate: Tue Oct 31 00:22:35 2017 -0700

In my case my name "G. Sylvie Davies" and my email address "sylvie@bit-booster.com" do match the values on my Bitbucket Server user profile.

To change these values on your local git environment:

git config --global user.name  "Mona Lisa"
git config --global user.email "mona.lisa@gmail.com"

 But that only changes the data for new commits.  Old commits are immutable.  You need to regenerate the commits you are trying to push to take in the updated metadata.  This should do the trick:

git commit --amend --reset-author

Try pushing again after that's been done.

Even above not working for me.
