git rewrite commit author

最近發現自己有些 Git Repository 的 Git Author name 用錯了 account
git commit history with author name 忘記了在 clone repo 既時候要用

git config user.name "sharechiwai"
git config user.email "MY_EMAIL"

要找些方法去改變舊 commit 上的 Author name
做了一會 research 之後終於找到了

解決方法: 我們可以執行以下 git command 去 update 整個 repository 上的 Author name, Author email, committer name 和 committer email

git filter-branch -f --env-filter "GIT_AUTHOR_NAME='YOUR_GIT_NAME'; GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL='YOUR_GIT_EMAIL'; GIT_COMMITTER_NAME='YOUR_GIT_NAME'; GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL='YOUR_GIT_EMAIL';" HEAD

git commit rewrite author name e.g.

git filter-branch -f --env-filter "GIT_AUTHOR_NAME='sharechiwai'; GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL='YOUR_GIT_EMAIL'; GIT_COMMITTER_NAME='sharechiwai'; GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL='YOUR_GIT_EMAIL';" HEAD

git commit rewrite author name success

Hope you find it useful
