Dear Redmine,

We have an issue with our current version of Redmine. We have about 50 different projects in our location installation, including some plugins:

  Redmine version                3.3.2.stable
  Ruby version                   2.1.2-p95 (2014-05-08) [x86_64-linux]
  Rails version        
  Environment                    production
  Database adapter               Mysql2
  Subversion                     1.8.11
  Mercurial                      1.4
  Git                            2.3.1
Redmine plugins:
  plantuml_macro                 0.0.1
  redmine_wiki_extensions        0.7.0
  redmine_wiki_lists             0.0.8
  scrum                          0.16.2

Since a day ago, we are having problems with our (sub)projects being re-arranged incorrectly in the breadcrumbs (top left corner) and the drop-down list for project selection in the top-right corner. Please see attached file redmine-bug-breadcrumbs.png).

Even though in the settings page of "Project A" the information is correct (Project A is a subject of Projects, which is a subproject of Development), in the breadcrumbs and drop-down list it shows that Project A is subproject of Development.

It also seems that when we want to move one (sub)project to a different level, many other projects get "moved" unwanted. Is there some cache that needs to be cleared, or do we have some corrupted data in the database?

Please describe more details.
What do you expect and result?

Actions #2

Updated by Robin Corba over 6 years ago

Let's say I have to following project structure in my Redmine installation:

Development > Projects > Project A

However in the breadcrumbs in the top left corner, and the drop-down list it is like this:

Development > Project A

So, I want to move 'Project A' to become the subproject of 'Projects' however when I change the parent project to 'Projects' Redmine will make the parent project 'Development' again, which is on level too high.

In some cases, we have the following structure:

Development > Projects > Project B
Development > Project A

If I move Project A to become a child of Projects, for some reason Project B is moved to a different project (for example Finance):

Development > Projects > Project A
Finance > Project B

I think there is a bug in the project movement.

  • Category deleted (UI)

Did you try bundle exec rails runner "Project.rebuild_tree!"?
