Unique names (fields, project) error

I created custom field Release, then I deleted it. When I was creating another field with the same name I got an error

"Property CustomFieldPrototype.name is invalid. Value should be unique"

What? How can I fix it now?

Similar problem with projects. When I delete project I cannot create the one with the same name. It's very bad behaviour.

Hi,

Regarding project creating, 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 the project by pressing "Delete project" button in the right upper corner of the screen.

Please let me know if it helps.

Ok, I will try it. And what about the first part of the question?

Regarding the first question - would you mind recording a HAR-file on an attempt to create a custom field (https://youtrack-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/206546369-When-we-ask-you-to-provide-additional-details-logs-database-HAR-etc-)? 

Do you use inCloud or standalone YouTrack?

I am just user. I have no access to logs. We use standalone YouTrack.

You don't need access to logs to record a HAR-file, a guide can be find here: https://youtrack-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/206546369-When-we-ask-you-to-provide-additional-details-logs-database-HAR-etc-.

Which YouTrack version do you use? Is it possible to restart it and check if the problem still persists?
