0001904: Test Project disappeared from the dropdown box
I created a second Test Project, I now had 2 projects, and I started copying my test cases from 1 project to another. But all of a sudden my original test project completely disappeared from the dropdown box on the top right of the screen.

I went into the mysql database and it is still listed in the database and all of the test plans are still in the database. I can modify entries fine but the project is just not being seen in testlink under project management or in the drop down box.
No tags attached.

1. do you see project on test project page ?
2. send me dump zipped to

Could you check, that the user has still correct rights for the disappeared project? Check in "Assign Test Project roles" page. Do you see the project in combo box on this page?

Sorry for the delay, long weekend!

All 5 users cannot see the project under the 'Assign Test Project roles'. Even any accounts with admin status cannot see the lost project.

I'm uploaded 2 screendumps, where "Mail House Reconciliation" is the project that I can not see, and "Toll System Reconciliation System" is the only project visible within testlink.

I've tried backing up the database, completly removing testlink and putting in new users and database's, then importing the previous database in. But it still gives me the exact same problem. Maybe it's not testlink but the database itself

Something that leads me to believe that it might not be testlink itself is that nowhere in the events section is there any mention of the project being deleted, removed, renamed or any kind of action to do with the missing project

your dumps where not good.
I need a dump only of TL db.

it's a crazy case. Could you use myPhpAdmin or some other tool and get a content of the table testprojects?

SELECT * FROM `testprojects`

Do you use fome special characters?

is there any progress?

Hello, I had the same problem, all projects are stored in the table testprojects correctly but the drop-down list not shows all. I had to insert into table nodes_hierarchy two records that were apparently removed.

1. The node of TestProject missed in the drop-down list
2. The node of Testplant corresponding to the TestProject

It solved the problem and I can see again the Test Project in the drop-down list.

In my case the test projects have disappeared after reordering a specs requirements tree

It looks that the cause was already fixed as no new report for the problem are in later versions.
I suggest to close.
