It is possible to rename a project via the public REST api or the avn client.

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.

Renaming is allowed only when there are no services powered on, so you must power off all the existing services inside that project before renaming it. Except for Aiven Kafka, all other service types have backups which are restored once you power them back on.

It is currently not possible to rename a project through the web console.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Support and let us know.
