At work we are using Bitbucket / Sourcetree and Windows10.
I just updated Sourcetree to version 188.8.131.52
Author on Bitbucket: Firstname Lastname (with space)
Author in Sourcetree project + general settings: FirstnameLastname (without space)
Author in Sourcetree History tab: Lastname + email
Why is Sourcetree showing only "Lastname" for the commit author in the History tab, when the name given in the project settings and in the global Sourcetree settings is "FirstnameLastname"? Use global settings checkbox in project settings is active.
On Bitbucket itself is shows "Firstname Lastname". Again different (space between) but just why is Sourcetree neither using the name thats shown on Bitbucket nor the name given in the settings?
Hi @Jessica.Lazarus ,
welcome to community!
Please read the following detailed guide on how-to manage name in sourcetree https://www.awordfromnet.com/how-to-change-name-and-email-address-of-author-and-committer-with-sourcetree/
In particular, try the following approach :
Hope this helps,
The option to allow Sourcetree to modify Git- & Mercurial config files was and still is enabled.
The option to use global user setting is also enabled ( I wrote that already)
The .gitconfig says "Firstname Lastname" (with a space)
Sorry, but that didn't help at all.
