In SonarQube Enterprise Edition Version 8.9 (build 43852), as an administrator, I could not delete a project in Administration / Projects / Delete
I get the error “The request cannot be processed. Try again later”
I tried using the rest api :
curl -L POST -u admin:xxx https://sonar.xxxxxx/web_api/api/projects/delete?project=xxxx:yyyyy
but I get a 403 (authenticated with admin account).
The project does not appear in project list (from Projects)
Is there a way to remove it directly in DB?
Welcome to the community!
Do you have administer permissions directly on the project? It’s possible to be a global admin and not have those permissions and I believe they’re specifically necessary for project deletion.
I don’t have permissions directly on this project. No body has anymore.
I tried to apply default template permission and I cannot.
The users that had permissions, are no longer in the company. I can I reset permissions, or I can I delete that project? May removing it from DB?
The great thing about being a global admin is that you can grant yourself permissions on a project.
Administration → Projects → Management → [Cog menu] → Edit Permissions
