I have GitHub Enterprise, how do I force the display of Full Names on commits, not Usernames?

We just signed up for GitHub Enterprise for my company.  I noticed on my commits that my User Name is showing up, not my Full Name.  I have set this correctly on my local machine under the global config.

I was looking for an Organization or Enterpise policy to enforce Full Names to be displayed, but don't see anything.

What am I missing?

Hi @Airn5475,

 

Thank you for being here! It is currently not possible to display the user's full name instead of the username. 

 

In more recent releases of GitHub Enterprise it's possible for users to change their username whilst maintaining the authentication mapping (i.e. LDAP) with their previous username. This would allow a more personal presentation in the web user interfaces.


I hope this helps,
Andrea
