Project is gone

I have a board in Jira that contained a number of issues.

I changed something in the permissions and now it looks like the project the board is linked to is not there anymore. I also do not see the project in the project list.

When checking the filter I get an error that project=<xyz> is not existing.

How can I fix this? Is this a permission related thing or is there something else corrupt/wrong? How can I fix this?

Maybe you changed the permission scheme by revoking yourself the "browse permission", or you changed the issue security scheme ..?

I do not think so but how can I solve whatever is the cause?

You need to get an administrator to check the permission scheme associated with the project to verify you have browse permission. It can be directly, through a group, or through a project role.

Unfortunatly I am the administrator :-(

That means you can get to the project via admin

Although you might not have any right to see it at all, that's a user setting. Admins can always get to the admin screens in projects, even if they can't normally see the project. Go to Admin -> Projects -> List of projects. (Not just "projects" on the top bar - that's the user side).

If it's still not listed, you may have deleted it!

That's it, thx! I can see it in the list of projects.

Excellent. From there, you'll want to look at the permission scheme (issue security schemes will hide issues, potentially all of them in the project, but not the whole project)

Yes, I fixed permissions. Thx!

Correct answer was from Nic above:

Thank you so much.  I've never had that happen before and I freaked for a second.   I always go through the projects bar, so it didn't occur to me to go in a different way!!!
