Renaming a project is possible when all the services in the project are powered-off.

Once powered off, you can rename your project from the Aiven Console, avn client or via public REST api.

Please note:

  • Except for Aiven for Apache Kafka, all other service types have backups which are restored once you power them back on.

  • Renaming the project will invalidate all of the project's pending invitations.

  • The project name in your existing DNS records will not be updated.

Rename via Aiven Console

We have recently introduced the 'Settings' menu for projects from which you can rename the project, update the account it is associated with, and add technical contacts for the project.

Go to 'Settings' in the left menu and follow the instructions on the screen.

Using the public REST api

curl --request PUT \
--url https://api.aiven.io/v1/project/<project name> \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer <bearer token>' \
--header 'content-type: application/json' \
--data '{"project_name":"<new name>"}'


Using the avn client

avn project update --project <project name> --name <new name>

The CLI aiven client also supports the --help switch for addition information.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Support.
