Code author name/id that is displayed is not right

Hi all, I’m new to Sonarcloud. Created my account via my company GitHub account.
When I was looking at code coverage reports, code smells or bugs; an old password of a user is shown instead of the name or the id. Like in the attached image. This is for one particular user only.


The projects were created by importing from GitHub.

I feel that this is a security compromise. Is there a setting to change this somewhere?
Thank you.

Hey there.

A user probably has their git config messed up, which will lock this information in your Git history forever, unless you want to try and rewrite Git history. You cannot turn off the availability of author data in SonarCloud.

Hi Colin, Thank you. I will try this and update.

Update: Fixing the GitHub config fixed the issue. Thank you for the support.
