A repo got renamed and the URL changed.
The name change was picked up, but the URLs for issues and PRs has not, so all the notifications point to the old URI part, which is no longer valid.

If your issue is related to an subscription purchase please ensure you have installed the Octobox GitHub App for the repositories concerned.

🐞 Problem
Notifications which came in before the name change now link to a 404 on github.

🎯 Goal
The Notification URLs should be re-written when a change in repo name is detected.

💡 Possible solutions
When a repo name change is detected, check issue URLs and update accordingly.

📋 Steps to solve the problem

  • Create a repo
  • Create an issue
  • Rename the repo or change its URI part
  • Try to access issue via octobox
