Jira Datacenter, 8.20.11 : Can't delete Project

When I go to the Administration Project list to delete a Project, the Dialogue seems to be working normally.

However the Project is not deleted.

It finishes in 0 seconds (might have taken longer on initial Delete). I press "acknowledge", get returned to the Project List, an it's still there.

 

However I cannot browse the Project normally anymore, and Jira tells me it might have been deleted.

I already did a re-index, logged in with a different browser... on the Administration Side the Project still appears. Which also means I can't reimport the Project from our old instance, as the Project Key is in use.

So the issue seems to have been, that there were Attachments, which were not even correctly imported (know the problem there though) , which apparently led to not beeing able to delete the Project, however that should have created an error in the Deletion Dialogue imo.

Once I manually deleted the Attachements Folder the the Project, I was able to rerun "Delete Project" and this time it actually deleted the Project (or what was left of it)

Hi @Daniel Rohlfs 

 

Did you check logs? Please try view logs during when you will be deleting project.
