Accidentally deleted group

I accidentally deleted my group that was on the gitlab Silver plan by using the API.
Is there any way to get it back?

Thanks in advance,

Hi @denElias. Welcome to the GitLab Community forum!

I’m sorry to hear that your group was unintentionally deleted. Unfortunately, it is not possible to restore a group that has been deleted on The users will remain intact, but the group and the group’s projects were deleted.

Your Silver subscription includes Priority support from official GitLab Support team members (myself included).
I encourage you to take advantage of this by submitting a support ticket for this problem.

In the meantime, I think the best path forward would be to:

  • recreate the group
  • add the users back into it
  • recreate projects on

To get the repository data back, you can use project export backups (if available), or have a user push a copy/clone of the repository from their local machine.
