Allow option to set git username for online commits

Issue #15630 resolved

Whenever I edit a repo online in a browser bitbucket makes the commit as my "full name". Why does it use this instead of the git username? Thats the purpose of the git username.

There should be a way to change this behavior because it means I cant edit online without breaking my CDCI processes that rely on the git username.

    Hi Borgil,

    Git usernames are typically users' full names, so it makes sense that we use your configured full name in the Bitbucket UI (which is configurable).

    If your CI/CD system depends on a constant value, I suggest keying off Git email address.
