Is there any way to transfer project ownership to another GitHub account or does the new account just have to make its own copy of the build? We started our build with my own account and we'd like to move it to the long-term owner of the project.

    Hi Chris,

    We can move the project between accounts. Just tell me source and destination account names.

    Hello Feodor, et al:

    I was hoping that you could do the same for me as you did for Chris Rummel.

    The project I own is at, and I would like to transfer ownership to

    Any efforts we can make towards this, would be appreciated. Let me know how I can assist.

    We can transfer AppVeyor project to another AppVeyor account, not to GitHub account. It is like strictly typed :) So we need name of the target AppVeyor account. In many cases we do not ask this, because often it is easy to guess what AppVeyor account is linked to the specific GitHub account. In this case I am not 100% sure. I suppose it is AppVeyor account called AppVeyorDashAdmin, but need you to clarify.

    Also we need to be sure that owner or admin of the target account is aware of this transfer. For that please request this move with email to team at and CC to the target account's owner.
