Git uses your username and email address identify the author of every commit. Before making a commit, you'll need to set up your identity.
To proceed, go Settings > Version Control > Identity.

Set up your credentials

If you are cloning a private repository or pushing changes to a repo, you need to set up credentials. To start, enter your credentials at Settings > Version Control > Authentication.
In many cases, you'll need to use a personal access token instead of using the regular password. To know more about this:
