Not able to see existing Projects in Designer, while some do

Version: 8.1.10 (b2021090812)

  • Java Version: * 11.0.11+9-LTS
  • Windows Server 2019 | amd64 * 11.0.11+9-LTS

I stopped ignition
Deleted all files and folders from projects folder
Cloned 10 projects
started ignition
only 4 visible in designer and ignition perspective client fails to load starting project.

Any idea why?

Example of log for one of the projects that doesn’t show in designer:
Setting LastModification to “external” on zicamarillofactory/CamarilloFactory/InspectionLine1/InspectionLine1/Big [com.inductiveautomation.perspective/views]

Because your method is unsupported. Deleting and copying files to projects folder in install dir is not the correct way.
Take your time and read this Project Export and Import - Ignition User Manual 8.1 - Ignition Documentation (

Before going the correct way and since you already did a thing like this, try to delete db forder inside data and restart the gateway.

Additional note, you don’t need JDK installed.

Thanks Jonathan. Since the projects were the same (just refreshed due to some repo issue), I thought delete and clone would work.

However, with your comment I went and looked at the gateway and found that a simple edit fixed the problem. As you can see the old project was Camel case and new one is all lowercase, and selecting right name fixed it.
