Error Creating New Assignments

Has anyone run into the “Invalid repository selection, please check it again.” error when creating a new assignment on the first step, “Assignment Basics”? What’s odd is that I haven’t even selected a repository by that step…

I think am getting the same error when I try to create a new assignment. I also can’t even get to the page to select a repo so I have no idea how to fix it. Does your error look like this?

If it’s the same bug I encountered earlier you can hit the cancel button and start creating it again from scratch.

For the devs: I think the reason it happened for me is because the form saves progress and will save an empty/invalid repo name on the second step. If you close and reopen the form you will start on step1 but with an invalid repo name still saved that fails validation. Step2 inputs shouldn’t be validated at step1
