Why is there no picture or user link in the Stash Commit List?

Bitbucket, formerly known as Stash, is Atlassian's git web interface, much like github.com. The killer feature of Stash over Github or GitLab is that it integrates "seemlessly" with Jira (the issue tracker).

When browsing the commit list on Stash, however, I someties find that there's no profile picture of the user nor a link to that user's Jira or Confluence profile page.

The reason for this is that the user has a different email in his/her ~/.gitconfig than what's registered for that user in Atlassian Confluence/Jira/Stash.

The fix is easy, just two steps:

  1. Head over to your profile page on Bitbucket, Confluence or Jira and check the email address there.

  2. Open your ~/.gitconfig in your favourite editor and make sure the email reads the same as what you found on your Confluence profile page:

    name = John Doe
    email = john@example.com
