"project cannot be archived" message

Added by Marco Gutsche almost 8 years ago

Hello,

I've tried to archive two sub projects. One can be archieved without problems.
For the second one I get the following error message:

This project cannot be archived.

I've looked at the redmine log but couldn't determine the reason for this error message.

Does anybody know what the problem is when this error message is shown?
Thank a lot.

You probably do not need this information anymore, but just for the record, I fell on the issue myself today.

The explanation is most probably that one of the versions defined in the project is used by an issue of another project.
In order to check this, you can simply click on each of the versions defined in the project that you can't archive, and see if some issues are listed, which would not be in the project itself.

This can happen if a version has been shared with subprojects at some point, and the subproject using the version was then moved to another parent project, for example.
