One of my other admins created a global space called "Test Space" with short name "TS".
He then tried to delete it and got back the "Space removal long running task - In Progress". The "Removed space" green bar moved across in 5 seconds and he got the: Completion: 100% complete.
But the space still seems to exist. When I went into the "Space Admin"->"Permissions" section. It shows there are no administrators. I added our administrator group AND my own name as full space admin.
Tried deleting the space again ... same result. And again there are no space admins listed.
I assume the space is corrupt but I'm at a loss to figure out how to remove the space.
Anyone have any ideas?
It is a bit messy to delete a space directly from your database, however it is possible. Please try the steps provided here and ensure that database backup is available before trying to update your database directly:
Hope it helps.
We had a similar issue when we upgraded Confluence from 4.1.6 to 4.2.8. We didn't have Adaptavist Descendant Notifications plugin installed but found that the issue was caused by the Confluence sub space plugin.
We disabled the plugin and were able to delete spaces again. However, this broke the default dshboard as it wasn't displaying any of our spaces at all. We had to direct users to the Space Directory so that they could get to their respective spaces.
