Is Visual Studio Code Bugging You For Your User Name and E-Mail Address?

“Please configure your git user name and e-mail”

Are you seeing this message when trying to push changes from Visual Studio Code to github?

It turns out that all of those times I’d been pushing/pulling from the command prompt and entering my name and email each time could have been avoided with the same configuration. But Visual Studio Code wasn’t going to let me get away with that laziness.

I finally GoogleBinged the message and learned that the configuration is something you need to do from the command prompt.

git config --global user.name yourname
git config --global user.email [email protected]

  1. You can also have git remember your credentials for sites like BitBucket and GitHub, so you don’t have to enter those every time you pull/push.
