Can't add members to "parent project" when all subprojects are archived
Closed, InvalidPublic


We have a project that was supposed to represent a group of users. However, we mistakenly created a subproject and archived it immediately and now we can't add members to the parent project. I'm not sure if this is a bug or it's working as intended...I understand that users can't join parent projects, but it does sound counterintuitive (at least IMO) that a project with no active subprojects is still considered a parent project

Reproduction steps

  1. Create a project
  2. Create a subproject of the recently created project
  3. Archive the subproject
  4. Now you can't add members to the parent project

This behavior sounds correct to me.

Yes, this is expected. The process of converting a project to become a parent project can not be undone:
