How to make Git commit history show up at Redmine issue tracker

Added by Brian Hsu over 8 years ago

Hello,

I followed this instruction (http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Redmine) and setup an Redmine site on my DreamHost account with Git repository.

It works fine so far, I could manage my project using Redmine, and commit my code to the Git repository using SSH, and I could browse my source code and commit history using Redmine user interface.

But there is my problem: It does not hook Git commit history with issue tracker like the official Redmine site.

For example, there is a commit log listed on http://www.redmine.org/issues/7000.

But in my case, I created a ticket which is numbered by Redmine as #5, and I created a commit log like the following:

commit 580fdb33877d7b4167863f5138973b7a83b352aa
Author: Brian Hsu <XXXX.XXXX@gmail.com>
Date:   Fri Mar 11 11:43:43 2011 +0800

    Add README file. (#5)

commit 9cf0d98a319ffca501dc541c76a6cff9a32d6146
Author: Brian Hsu <XXXX.XXXX@gmail.com>
Date:   Fri Mar 11 11:40:00 2011 +0800

    Inital commit.

I could see these commit in the source code browser in version control tab and click "#5" to go to the issue #5. But in that ticket, it does not show the commit log of 580fdb33877d7b4167863f5138973b7a83b352aa in that ticket.

So how could I hook Git and Redmine issue tracker?

BTW, I followed the master/develop two branch workflow mentioned by "A successful Git branching model" (http://nvie.com/posts/a-successful-git-branching-model/), so I would also like Redmine to hook the commit in develop branch instead of master.

Thanks.

Sorry, my fault.

There are keywords to associate the commit history with issue tracker tickets listed on the page settings/edit?tab=repositories

Change my commit log with "refs #5" and it works.

You can set the keywords to * to have it reference any #id construct.

Great - that helped me as well.

One important note: After changing the keywords, the repository has to be imported again - otherwise the change is without effect.

FWIW: the repo does not have to be (re-)imported after a change of the keyword settings. The new settings will be used immediately after the change, for every new commit(-message) that is parsed by Redmine.
