GITHUB_USER_NAME - Env Variable

Hello…

I am having an issue where this variable is set incorrectly I believe…

When I login in with one account called rsliotta, this is set to “Robert Liotta” instead of rsliotta.
I created a second github account as rsliotta-dev for testing and this one is set to rsliotta-dev.

Can you kindly let me know how to correct this? I need to depend on the github login as a dependency for something.

Hi @rsliotta! Do you actually mean the Env Var GITPOD_GIT_USER_NAME? I cannot find the GITHUB_USER_NAME one.

The former is used to configure git:

gitpod $ git config -l
...
user.name=Alex Tugarev
user.email=alex.tugarev@typefox.io

I need to depend on the github login as a dependency for something.

Would setting a Env Var on https://gitpod.io/settings/ work for you as well?

Yes. Sorry for the spelling. I am setting an env for that now but it would be nice if the github login id could come across
