git and stash username link

how does stash match a git username to a stash profile (that's synced via jira)? Also is there a way to ensure that people have setup their git config user.name and user.email in such a way that those are recognized by stash?

Stash matches a users' email address to the user.email property in the commit. If no user is found with that email address, the user.name property in the commit will be displayed in Stash. 

I'm not aware of anything available to check the user.name and user.email of a commit message, but this could be done with pre-receive hook add-on.

There is also a feature request for improving push traceability and what checks Stash would perform based on the author information in the commit - https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/STASH-2642

It looks like the Yet Another Commit Checker (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.isroot.stash.plugin.yacc) add-on may be able to verify the commit author. "Require committer name and email to match Stash user"
