Git uses our username to associate commits with an identity. The git config command can be used to change our Git configuration, including your username.

Suppose you want to give a username and email id to associate commit with an identity so that you can know who has made a commit. For that I will use:

git config –global user.name “Your Name”: This command will add your username.

git config –global user.email “Your E-mail Address”: This command will add your email id.
