Problem Creating a New Terra Billing Project

    Hi Lleonard, 

    There should be no issues with terra-billing@terra.bio appearing as terra-billing@firecloud.org in your Google billing project. This error often occurs because the name you chose for the terra billing project is the same as a Google project that already exists. The name needs to be unique so that Terra can create a project of the same name on your behalf. Do you know if the name you tried to use is the same as one that already exists?

    Kind regards,

    Jason

    No, there's no project with the same name. I also tried 3 different names.

    Hi Lleonard,

    It can sometimes be hard to say definitively whether there is another project with the same name, as it applies to all of Google. On occasion, a name someone wishes to use for their billing project is already used by someone else somewhere in the world for their Google project. For instance, I see that in your original error you tried creating a billing project with the name my-billing-account, which has a high probability of being taken. Would you mind trying something a little more specific to you or your group, and perhaps add "-terra" to the end of it?

    If you are still finding issues creating groups, please share with me the names you have tried and we can see if there is any other reason this could be happening.

    Kind regards,

    Jason
