Cannot create project with a name from a deleted project


I created a project, and deleted it afterwards, just for testing. Now, I want to create that project again (for production). But when I want to save it, I get the following messae:

"Field Project::key must be unique"

But I cannot see that project anymore. It seems, that deleted project is still somewhere present.

How can I delete that "deleted" project, in order I can reuse that name?

This may happen if the deletion of the project has hung.
Please go to <your_youtrack_address>/hub/projects and check if the deleted project is still there in the list of the projects.
If it is, then press the cog icon of that project and go to Settings. Then delete project by pressing "Delete project" button in the right upper corner of the screen.

Please let me know if it helps.

Thanks! That worked!
