I've renamed my Github repo from to and updated my AppVeyor settings. AppVeyor now detects pushes and runs!

However, the AppVeyor URL for the project is still . and not

Could the project slug be updated in your database?

PS: thanks for a great service!!!!

    Hi Richard,

    While we still not exposed it in UI, API is available to change the slug. Please check this sample.

    I tried the script and got this error:

    Invoke-RestMethod : {"message":"Project not found or access denied."}
    I got the API_TOKEN from

    Here's script with the API_TOKEN protected.

    $env:API_URL = "" # replace for AppVeyor Enterprise
    $env:API_TOKEN = "v2.XXX" # from
    $env:APPVEYOR_ACCOUNT_NAME = "richardschneider" # from AppVeyor project URL
    $env:APPVEYOR_PROJECT_SLUG_OLD = "net-ipfs-api"  # from AppVeyor project URL
    $env:APPVEYOR_PROJECT_SLUG_NEW = "net-ipfs-http-client"  # Desired slug

    $headers = @{ "Authorization" = "Bearer $env:API_TOKEN" "Content-type" = "application/json" }

    $s = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri "$env:API_URL/projects/$env:APPVEYOR_ACCOUNT_NAME/$env:APPVEYOR_PROJECT_SLUG_OLD/settings" -Headers $headers -Method Get $s.settings.slug = $env:APPVEYOR_PROJECT_SLUG_NEW Invoke-RestMethod -Uri "$env:API_URL/projects" -Headers $headers -Body ($s.settings | ConvertTo-Json -Depth 10) -Method Put

    Again, thank you for your help.

    Please check that you selected API token for "all accounts" or correct one.

    Doh! Get the api token from my account name, NOT "All accounts" work.

    Again thanks for your time.
