Email from CircleCI showing Author: Unknown even after git config --global user.name is updated


#1

We were getting emails from circleCI showing the Author of the commit as “Unknown” but linking that text to their email address. We suspected this was because of the git config --global user.name not being set, but even after we set this, the commits were still coming through as Unknown. Is this a caching issue or are we not resolving it correctly?
