Describe your question in as much detail as possible:

git push via ssh attributes commit to a different user’s name. That different user doesn’t even have an ssh key, but their email address is similar to mine because I set it up as an automation account and it had to have some email address.
- my real account: user, email: email@example.com with ssh key
- automation user: automation, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, with just access token, no ssh keys
I commit via git push using ssh key of email@example.com. Commit in gitlab web UI shows update was made by “automation” instead of “user”
what should happen:
git push as user, commit shows update from “user”
