  • Add some commits authored with an identity A that will get assigned to user X and some authored with an identity B that will not get assigned to anyone.
  • Explicitly unassign identity A from user X.
  • Explicitly assign identity B to user X.
  • Go to user X's commit list from the user X's profile page or craft a query for Diffusion commits, specifying X as author.

Commits A are not returned, commits B are returned — reflecting current state of identity-user mappings.

Commits A are returned, commits B are not returned — reflecting the state of affairs at the time of indexing the commits.

Screenshots (from comment):

Here, I assigned one of your identities to myself:

Now when you go to the list of your commits, there is some entry from "me", but there shouldn't.

And when you look at my commits, there are none — but there should, as this commit is now mine, as far as Diffusion is concerned.

This seems to be an incomplete feature. This is the related Task:

T15556: Improve Diffusion identity reassignment propagation

In theory, it seems there is a Diffusion script do to so, but it does not do that:

./repository rebuild-identities


./repository rebuild-identities --all-identities
