FishEye Create API Throws Repository Already exists


Hi Mates,


I have an automated workflow does the following.


1) Check if any existing repo exists with same name

2) If not create a new repository

3) Start the repository and disable the polling


But at the 2ndstep API  throws an error "code : IllegalArgument message: Repository: RepoTest1 already exists" even though the repository never existed on the FishEye.


When I find it in UI it has created the repository in stop state


FishEye and Crucible Version : 4.7.0

API : POST  /rest-service-fecru/admin/repositories

JSON Data : {
"type": "git",
"name": "RepoTest1",
"description": "RepoTest1",
"storeDiff": "true",
"enabled": "true",
"git": {
"location": "",
"auth": {
"authType": "key",
"privateKey": "",
"publicKey": ""
"blockSize": 400,
"commandTimeout": "1 hour",
"renameDetection": "NONE"


Please help.
