Another error running app question

Hi, I have a question similar to I can't delete my own App

I am unable to delete my app and I am receiving an error message when I try to launch it. The previous replies suggest that this is due to a name change, but the name of the repository has been unchanged. It did, however, switch owners. It is a private repo under an organization, and was transferred to another account owned by the organization, which is when this error began. I had initially forked the repo from the organization account, and no other errors occurred on github or elsewhere when the transfer occurred. I’ve tried re-forking the repo to no avail and I am unable to transfer the repo back. Is there any other way to delete it and restart? Any other suggestions?

Perhaps I also mis-identified the problem since the name of the repository itself has not changed, e.g. it remained user/repo-name after the transfer. Just the account that it was forked from changed. I’m really at a loss of what this could be.

I hope this makes sense. Thank you!

Hi @Anna_Wuest,

just a random guess but it could be that streamlit cloud does not have permissions anymore to do the required operations, maybe you need to link the organization account or your currently linked account needs admin/owner permissions on the repository again which it might have lost when you changed the owners.


Best regards,

Thanks for your thoughts @nflaig !

I was added as an admin, and I disconnected and reconnected my personal account to no avail. I was hoping to avoid going through the company account, especially considering that was not necessary initially. I’ll keep looking into it.

Thanks again!
