How to find project in Context menu after name change?

When I'm looking to add a context project to a specific custom field, I am unable to find the project within the select list.  I can see that the project name is PDP - Mobile Platform iOS and the Key for that project is DMI.


So I'm assuming at some point the project name was changed. After the project has been re-indexed I still can't find the project within the "Apply to issues under selected projects" option.

So I'm not sure how to find the project in order to add a context to the project.  Does this require a full Jira system re-index or is there something else that I should be doing?

I'm also a Jira admin so I can see all of the projects in my environment even the project in question when creating tickets so permissions aren't the issue it seems.Screen Shot 2019-11-12 at 4.42.42 PM.png

Issue was resolved after a re-index and removing the old project name from the context and creating a new custom field context for the impacted project.
