Failed to create remote repository: Repository with this Slug and Owner already exists.

Hello all,

I've been trying to create a repository but I run into this error. I have no idea how to fix it, I searched a bit here and there in this community but haven't been able to find an answer. Thanks in advance for your help!Error.png

The error means of course means that wherever the remote repository is (e.g. Bitbucket Cloud, Github), a repository already exists. Go double check that.

We are getting similar error. We have deleted the workspace and project names. But we are still getting the error when we try recreate with the same names? Is this a permanently reserved name space now, or does the cache clear out on the the cloud host, after say 24 hours, and free that name for reuse?
