Sorry, we can't display this file: Repository XYZ does not exist when we opening old review in Crucible?

Dear Team,

Greeting for the day !!!

We have renamed the git from xyz.git to xyz due to some reason. But now when I open the Old review it is displaying a message i.e.Sorry, we can't display this file: Repository XYZ does not exist.

We have re-index the repository but still not able to view the old reviews & their Information.

Hi Satyendra,

As mentioned by Marek, if you manually rename a repository it won't update any reference to this name, so you may observe some inconsistencies. In fact, renaming a repository isn't supported, as the change in its name won't be reflected by the database.

Can you please give a try to rename it back to its original name, restart Crucible and confirm if the problem goes away?

Please allow me to mention we have a feature request for this, which you can check at

Could you please tell what steps did you perform to rename a repository? Please note that renaming it in config.xml only is not sufficient as data stored in DB and Lucene will still contain references to the old name.
