2 separate global policies

I have kopia running in docker for the past 6 months. I check it every few weeks or so. Today I noticed I had 2 global policies listed. kopia policy list showed:

4ce4d265ce584f50365eee3cb584675a (global)
e1823275dfc7083389f7a0a594998695 (global)

The settings in the 2 global policies were identical. In the webUI, I selected the first and changed retention policy to see if it would alter the other global policy. Now there is just one global policy. kopia policy list now shows

9c1b389adcdc177eb1781a63d1df0713 (global)

I’m wondering how I got 2 global policies to begin with and if that would have any strange effects on other policies, backup behavior, etc.

Hi, I also had this issue but after a restart or reconnect, the second global policy was gone. However, I was not able to reproduce this. As this seems to be bug, you may want to check if there is an open issue on this on github.

If there isn’t one, we should create it :slight_smile:
