Using the Redmine API

General

  • Official documentation: http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/Rest_api
  • Use proper Content-Type header, as otherwise redmine will simply respond with 500 Internal Server Errror". So use @application/json or application/xml
  • Cocoa Rest client works fine on MacOS

Project creation

An example for creating new projects:

POST http://forge.typo3.org/projects.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project id="1">
  <name>New Project Name</name>
  <identifier>project-identifier</identifier>
  <description>The project description</description>
  <parent_id>put-here-the-parent-projects-(numeric)-id</parent_id>
</project>
