Renaming a Forge application

Hello !

Is it possible to rename a Forge application ? I’ve changed the app.name in the manifest.yml and re-deployed the app, but I can see any change in the developer console or on instance UPM.

My deployed manifest:

modules:
  jira:projectPage:
    - key: rename-me-hello-world-project-page
      function: main
      title: myJiraProjectPage
  function:
    - key: main
      handler: index.run
app:
  id: <removed>
  name: app-with-new-name

The developer console (rename-me is the initial name):
image

The instance UPM:

I’ve also tried to uninstall/reinstall the app, but it doesn’t change anything.

Thanks in advance

This seems to be some kind of bug or oversight indeed, please watch and vote for the following issue to raise Atlassian’s priority to address this odd limitation:

Note that I also asked about a semantic oddity with how this seems to be designed, not sure whether or not that’s in any way related to renaming simply not working at all right now:

It also seems slightly odd to (apparently) tie a cross-environment concern to an environment specific CLI command btw., maybe this could be adjusted when addressing this limitation? For example, I would have expected to be able to ‘change’ the registration via forge register and a resp. CLI option or so?

Hey, thanks for suggesting this ticket (I’ve looked in the Jira Forge project but only with the “renaming” term). Voted and watched.

Hi @clement_garin, note that it is now possible to rename your app via the developer console. Hope this helps.
