I recently deleted a subproject from a group on gitlab.com and immediatly attempted to re-use its name for another project, without success (see screenshots: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1fwzz1y9n6-KipOsMzgPPsUKagQa21Efp ). I then waited for a few days before trying again, but the problem persists. Is there any time limit on the release of path names for re-use, or might this be due to some other problem or misunderstanding on my behalf?
@dannil10 Is that subgroup within a top-level group that’s on a Silver subscription for GitLab.com or on a self-managed instance that has a Premium license? If so, then it’s probably been marked for deletion and wasn’t deleted automatically.
I am on the gitlab.com free plan and do not seem to be able to find any “Restore” option. Would I need to upgrade to be able to re-use the path?
@dannil10 If you’re on the Free plan then the project would have been deleted immediately as soft-delete is an Enterprise Edition only feature. It sounds like we might need to investigate this in the backend. Please submit a support ticket so that we can take a look.
Will do. Thanks Tristan for swift assistance!
Same problem here:
Can you help me, please? Thank you in advance!
@didacticode I’ve just replied to the support ticket you submitted about this, so let’s continue the discussion there regarding your specific case.
