All my GitHub Classroom Group Assignments have Disappeared!

Today Jan 14th 2022, I realized that all my GitHub Classroom group assignments in the Classroom ull-mii-sytws-2122 corresponding to the org ULL-MII-SYTWS-2122 aren’t shown anymore in the GH Classroom interface!

The corresponding previously created teams have also disappeared from the org ULL-MII-SYTWS-2122 although the repos continue there:

The image above correspond to the repo for the team carlos-diaz-calzadilla. The team no longer exists.

I have other GH classrooms/orgs this course, but they don’t seem to be affected by this bug.

Does someone have any ideas or knows the reason for this strange behavior?

I believe I have found the reason behind this behavior:

If you remove one group assignment all the corresponding teams and all the previous group assignments are also removed

So, don’t dare to think of removing a single group assignment :cry:

Not only that, since the groups have been removed the students do not longer have access to the repos. Now recreating the permissions manually.

This gh cli extension (https://github.com/mislav/gh-repo-collab) is making the job less painful

Hi,

Thanks for letting us know about this unexpected behavior. We’re actively working on a fix for this that should be available soon!

As a note, once the fix is available, you will need to recreate the groupings for your existing assignment once more. It will then be fixed moving forward!

Hi,

Thanks Katherine!!

The worst was that the students lost their access to the repos created by previous assignments. But I have manually recreated the permits.

Thanks a lot
