Git uses invalid author name in commits
When i commit git uses not company mail but my personal, which i use in chrome, i do commits using ssh URL and ssh key contains correct mail address, in git lab commits are also under my name but when i open commit author there is my personal URL with nick name. Usually i commit using intellij idea but same result with console commands
I have already reinstalled git and replaced ssh key with new one but it still use my personal nick as author.
So how can i change author of new commits, so it’ll be by default correct?
i don’t want to write console commands with author argument every time i commit.

Update your Git config file with required Name and Email Id.
You can update your config file from Git Bash:
git config --global user.name "[Your name]" git config --global user.email [email address]
This will set a global username and email.
To check your current settings:
git config --list
