Can't name an intent after a deleted intent


I created an intent called “setTimeBase” and then deleted it. I decided to recreate it later and when I tried to name it the same as the old intent I got this error message

"There was a problem saving your intent.

Error: already exists: intent name setTimeBase"


I had this problem in the past, too.
I needed some time to see that by deleting an assistant, not all corresponding intents or slots are deleted, too.
In the console have a look at Home --> My Intents.
There you will find your old intent. Delete it there and you can recreate it in your new assistant.



That worked, thank you!
