Set 'Parent task' attribute via email issue creation

Added by Brandon Tarney 25 days ago

How can I set the "Parent task" of an issue generated via email to redmine?

I am able to set project, tracker, priority, status, element, and estimated time fields but not "Parent task" by using colon-separated fields in the body of the email. I am able to set "Parent task" manually on-creation of a redmine issue or when editing an issue, so I know this functionality works in my current redmine setup.

i.e. I send the following email-body to redmine, and it properly sets all fields except "Parent task"

"

As far as I can tell, you can't. Such a feature has not been implemented yet. I did a quick scan through the issues-pool and was not able to find a request for this. You might want to open a feature request for it yourself.
