Empty group name

By my mistake, group name is changed to empty.
When I click the group with empty name, it always redirect to project workspace.
I can’t find any options make me enable to change the empty group name.
How can I change the empty group name.
It’s so inconvenient.

Hey there, can you share the link to the project where this happens?

Here is the link.

There are 4 groups as following:
Group: CIFAR10
Group: ← this is issue
Group: rotMNIST

Thank you, we are investigating the issue.

Hey Byungjin,

Thanks for sharing your workspace, this was escalated to me and after a bit of further investigation I can confirm that there are two ways that you can fix this:

  1. A quick User Interface(UI) fix would be to select all groups not in "" when using filters on your runs, I have attached a screengrab of this.

  2. To use API with the following code- or something similar in your own logic. I have left print statements in to show that empty strings are actually being printed.
    api = wandb.Api()
    runs_in_project = api.runs('<project_name>')
    rename = 'new name'
    for run in runs_in_project:
    if run.group=='':
    print(f'empty run {run.group}')
    run.group = rename
    print(f'renamed run{run.group}')

I would also like to submit this as a bug report and we will fix this as a UI issue.

sorry for late response.
Unfortunately, the ‘run’ doesn’t have group attribute.
The ‘group’ is a attribute of wandb.Run, not api.run.
Therefore your 2nd solution is not working.

HI Byungjin,

Thanks for being back in touch. I can update you that our engineering team are taking this forward to fix this for you. Could I ask you to share a code snippet of how you are calling the api and attempting to access the group attribute as well as any error(s) tracebacks/messages that you are seeing?

Hi Byungjin,
I am messaging to ask if you needed any further help with this and can confirm that the bug that you reported is now fixed in our UI.
