After renaming or transferring a repository in GitHub that is tied to a Waffle project, simply visit your original Waffle project URL (prior to the rename). We'll automatically redirect your project to its new URL and will carry over your project configuration, including columns, rank, and sizes. All references to the old project URL from within Waffle will update for all team members once the initial redirect takes place (including on team members' dashboards and project dropdowns.) If any team members visit the original URL, they will be redirected to the new project URL going forward.
If you have a project in Waffle, rename the repository in GitHub, and then create a new repository in GitHub with the same name as the original project in Waffle
for example: "ProjectA" is renamed to "ProjectA-old" and a new repository is created called "ProjectA"
visit your original Waffle project URL (in the example: ProjectA) and you will be redirected to it's new URL (in the example: ProjectA-old). You will then have to create a new project for the new GitHub repository (in the example: ProjectA).
If you rename a secondary connected repo for a multi-repo board, we will automatically handle that redirect for you. Note: if you have pull requests that are connected to issues for that repo, you will see them become disconnected due to the name change, but they will appear in the proper column based on their labels.
