Changing Role name "Project Admin" causes GitHub Imports to fail

Changing the role name to something else causes the following errors when importing from GitHub

Seems like this role name should be "read-only" - similar to the "project-admin" key of this role.

jetbrains.youtrack.api.ring.RingImporter$ExportFailedException: The following role cannot be exported to hub: Project Admin


Official comment

Hello Patrick,

thank you for your message on our forum. Just to clarify things: have you renamed the "Project admin" role on the YouTrack side or on the GitHub's?

Could you please submit a support request via this link and provide the import logs there? Also, please let us know if you're using an InCloud or a standalone YouTrack and which version. This should help us reproduce and address this issue.

Thank you very much, we'll be looking forward to hearing from you.


Hi Liubov

I've changed the role name in Youtrack.

I don't have the time to check for the logs right now but wanted to let you know anyways - this should be easily reproducible :)
