Error when creating a project
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

How do I go about creating a project similar to what I have seen that other users have under their names? (As an example, @DannyS712 's here.)

Whenever I attempt to create a project by clicking "create project" at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/ I get the below (and attached) error.

create_projects_permission_denied.PNG (262×955 px, 11 KB)

Access Denied: Projects
You do not have permission to create new projects.
Users with the "Can Create Projects" capability:
This object has a custom policy controlling who can take this action.

I would appreciate any assistance. Thanks!

Only specific users can create projects on phab; to request that a project be created add a request to Project-Admins; to be able to create them yourself ask to have access by commenting on T706: Requests for addition to the #acl*Project-Admins group (in comments)

TheSandDoctor removed a project: Project-Admins.

@DannyS712 Thanks for the response. I would say that this is "resolved" then rather than "invalid"? The latter doesn't seem appropriate to me given the context and that you resolved my query. :)

See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Project_management#Invalid_tasks - because there was nothing actionable in this report (you ran into a restriction that is supposed to be there) there is nothing to resolve
