Issue #7984 invalid

Author names differ

Tim Peel
created an issue

In one of the private GIT repos I have, it shows my timpeel user account has been committing (based on the overview screen), however, when I view the commit history view it shows the author as the team I am also a part of at work.

Why is this?

    I've altered my local configuration and it's now showing the same user on both views online. Still seemed odd though as one view was showing one user and the other view a different one.

    When you push, the username of the user who connected to Bitbucket is used as the display name of the pusher. The committer is different and is based on your local Git configuration. For more information about how we display author information, see this doc.
