Bug with renaming the project and API release

i made an auto-release creating container. everything worked.

So, i changed the project’s NAME. Now, the projectID has changed from 741 to 742.

so i query api for project by new name - i get 742. query by old name - null. ok

when i make a POST to make a release, it will not create a release for 742.

curl -v POST “https://deploy.corp.f.com/api/releases” -d “{“ProjectId”:“Projects-742”,“Version”:“0.0.58”,“SelectedPackages”:[{“StepName”:“Deploy”,“Version”:“1.0.11”}]}” -H “accept: application/json” -H “X-Octopus-ApiKey: API-yourmom”|jq -C

in response it will create a release HOWEVER, the “SelectedPackages”: [], is empty. no release is created in UI.

if i post to 741, same release post, (mind that project no longer exists as it was the old name) - release is created with correct array in RESPONSE:

“SelectedPackages”: [
“StepName”: “Deploy”,
“ActionName”: “Deploy”,
“Version”: “1.0.11”

is there any fix for this?

here is full response making a post to 742(new name)

figured out the issue.

so i curl for project name but curl finds all pattern matches

curl -X GET https://deploy.corp.vizientinc.com/api/projects/?Name=g_test -H “accept: application/json” -H "X-Octopus-ApiKey: “API-Uxxxxxxxxxxxxx -C -r ‘.Items[0] .Id’|sed 's/,$//g; s/”//g’

2 :
ag_test and - 742
g_test (what im looking for ) - 741
