      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Server. Using JIRA Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      In JIRA 6.1, it is possible to rename a project key. However, it is not possible to use a used project key.

      Current Behavior:

      • Let's say user has renamed a project key from "ABC" to "KLM"
      • Although there is no project uses the project key ABC, user is not allowed to re-use "ABC" for the new project key.

      Suggested behavior:

      • Ideally, user should be able to re-use the project key "ABC" for other/new project
