Description

Problem:

We want to position Redmine in our company for tracking our projects. We are an ECM company and utilize internally an ECM system ("Use what we sell."). This ECM system contains our project specific documents. At the current state of Redmine it is not possible to integrate these two systems.

Idea:

The documents section of Redmine can be well integrated with an ecm system by using the upcoming CMIS specification (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_Management_Interoperability_Services). CMIS defines how to access documents in an ecm system. CMIS defines two bindings, a REST-like API and a SOAP-API. Alfresco as opensource ECM system provides already a draft implementation (REST-binding) of CMIS, so it can already be used.

I would like to see that Redmine is able to browse through an ecm system, check-in (with comments) and check-out documents, delete documents and publish these information to the activity section, so that everbody in the projects sees if there is an update documents.

By the way, Alfresco Share (http://wiki.alfresco.com/w/images/5/51/Getting_Started_with_Alfresco_Share_for_Labs_3_Stable.pdf, http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_Labs_3_Share_Feature_List), a product of Alfresco, has a lot of features like Redmine, but is not focused on software projects.

As far as I understand this issue seems to be frozen. The same happens with the related one posted in Alfresco site http://forums.alfresco.com/en/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=12656

Googling around doesn't show any interesting result either.

However, I consider the combination of Redmine with a CMS so interesting for our company that this lack of results is really surprising.

¿Have you found anything recently wrt this topic?

I agree. Redmine is lacking a reel document management system or a content management system that allows versionning, better organisation and better access control.
But there is no point in creating a DMS or a CMS inside Redmine when it is possible to connect it to any of the new CMIS server (Exo Xcmis, alfresco CMIS, Nuxeo CMIS and so on)

Approach for CMIS integration seems a good design. I am interested for integration with Alfresco...

Alfresco and Redmine would be a perfect combination!

There is a company in Spain who has developed a plugin to integrate Alfresco with Redmine. You can read the post in spanish (only) at http://www.xnoccio.com/en/author/evasco/ however, the screenshots are crystal clear.

The plugin seems to be fully operational and has been developed for a Spanish public administration. Once the project is finished, this administration is supossed to upload the plugin to a public repository%

You can download the plugin here: http://bit.ly/i2EgL2

The documentation is in Spanish, however.
Enjoy it!

The link to the plugin for Alfresco seems to be broken.
Instead you can try the following:
  1. Visit the repository at http://www.juntadeandalucia.es/repositorio/index.jsf
  2. Search for "Redmine" using the "search projects" text box in the upper right corner of the page
  3. In case you don't see the plugin in the results list, narrow your search ticking the "complemento" filter

Hi!

just wanted to let you know we've recently uploaded a new plugin that lets you upload your redmine documents to your favorite CMS via cmis services. You can check it out here.

Hope you find it useful!

Can u explain what is the differnce to
http://www.xnoccio.com/en/author/evasco/ and http://www.redmine.org/issues/3071#note-14.

Also this DMSF Plugin was created these days.

Its great to have different approaches, but couldn't we just bring together the best of all plugins.

Advantages and disadvantages of all three plugin can show off what are the best features..

#18 Updated by Zuinq Studio over 6 years ago

As far as I know, http://www.xnoccio.com/en/author/evasco/ and http://www.redmine.org/issues/3071#note-14 both talk about the same plugin. The main difference between that one and the redmine-cmis plugin, (http://www.redmine.org/plugins/redmine_cmis) is that the first one supports only Alfresco, and the second one supports any Cmis compatible CMS. At last, DMSF plugin seems to persists documents in redmine, as usual, but offering some cool features, such as directory structure, massive upload, ...

Regards!

@Pedro

We tried to install the plugin but we didn't get it work. We don't use jruby but ruby, rake and gems on linux debian.
What do we have todo else than copying the plugins dir to <redmine>/vendor/plugins/alfresco_persistence and "rake db:migrate:plugins RAILS_ENV=production"
The command fails with java wrong or missing java version. We use ruby instead of jruby with apache passenger and not webrick. Do we have to copy libs or execute a script? What does this "IPathLibrerias " parameter is needed to? Can u make a short description in english and explain how this can work with "standard ruby" and standard redmine environment?

Btw. we would provide a german translation/locale and english if needed.

Tx for help and contributing.
