How To develop plugin for Redmine

Added by Alexandre Garino over 7 years ago

Hi,

On issue I need to add 3 new custom fields.

- Business Value (Numeric)
- Story Point (Numeric)
- ROI (Numeric, Formula: Business Value / Story Point)

Filtering against these custom fields is not required. But I'd like to sort issues by ROI.

The plugin seems to be quite easy to implement, but I've got no technical background neither ruby nor rails.

Do you provide any materials (doc, skeleton plugin, ...) to get started?

Any help would be appreciated,

Regards,
Alexandre

You can already add custom fields to issues, that should take care of the first 2. The last one is programmatic and needs some extra coding that can be done in a plugin. You can either extend the Issue model to add that as an attribute and add some custom views so that you can see them, but that would get you only so far. The imho best way would be to extend the custom fields model to get this functionality.

I used the Due Date plugin from Eric Davis as a skeleton.
