'Can't create branch' error when opening project in Studio

Problem Description

You cannot open an existing project after setting it to a newly created Git repo. This results in the following error message:

can't create branch

Branch master is not protected, and the user is allowed in Git and TAC.


Root Cause

  • You cannot have two projects with the same label.
  • You cannot rename a project label.
  • You cannot duplicate a project under the new label with the same URL for Git and SVN.



Delete the existing project in TAC and recreate it with a new name. This creates the new project in the Git and SVN backend.
