I try to create a project with a shared configuration. The project sharing configuration is X. The target project is Y.
When specifying the key, I have the error: Project 'X' uses this project key.
I don't understand why as I can't see any trace of my target key Y within X. What can I do to find out where that Y project key is said to be referenced by X ?
Indeed. Originally, a long time ago, the original name of X was Y. And it works with any other name. Does this mean that JIRA keeps that fact in some kind of memory and prevents any further use of Y as a key ?
Is there any way to bypass this ? (I know, it could not be a good idea, but in our case, it is useful, since Y was never used and only served as a test).
Edit: now, everything is clear: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-34945 The Y key has been used in the past. I can't use it again, unless I do myself some cleanup in the database.
Could it be that someone has changed key for the project?
Does it work if you specify another key for the new project?
