    Posted: 03.Jun.2022 at 07:19
Hi,

A user is trying to rename a project, but the list of projects to rename is empty, when we select "Rename" from the projects list. 

I've read the prerequirements for renaming at 2.3.3 Working with projects (metacase.com), and I think we're meeting them. This repository has a single project, and we haven't opened any models in it. Also, there are no other users in the repository. The account we're using is sysadmin. Does it have something to do with the fact we only have one project in the database?

So I'm wondering, what's the easiest way to get this done..

Thanks,
Jarno

Most likely the reason is that the project is already open. Only projects that have NOT been open in the transaction can be renamed.

Please login again without opening the project and then in MetaEdit+ main window choose ’Rename’ in the project list.

I didn't "open the project" in any way -- not explicitly at least. I just logged into the database, and tried to rename the project as the first thing.

Thanks,
Jarno

Can you please verify that the list of Projects on the left is empty? 

When performing similar steps here the dialog shows the only project that can be then selected and then  renamed successfully.

When logging in, deselect all projects - e.g. by pressing None above the project list.
