(I got tired of scrubbing spam from this page, please "contact me":/users/3866 with the needed modifications if you spot errors. I don't use Eclipse or Mylyn myself, so all credit goes to the original authors and those that have sent modifications to me.)

These instructions should work with redmine 0.9 stable and up.

There are 2 options to connect Mylyn to redmine: either install the connector in your redmine install (this obviously needs the ability to install a plugin on the redmine you want to use it with), or use the generic web connector, which scraps the html pages for the information it needs, and thus should work with pretty much every up-to-date enough redmine installation out there.

The "Redmine-Mylyn Connector":http://sourceforge.net/apps/wordpress/redmin-mylyncon/ is another solution providing better integration with Mylyn.

"Mylyn":http://www.eclipse.org/mylyn is an Eclipse plugin for task management.

This HowTo explains how to connect to Redmine using the generic web repository connector.

Note that the generic web repository connector is not part of the default Mylyn install.

So, you have to install it first from the _incubator_ update site (see http://download.eclipse.org/tools/mylyn/update/incubator).

You can replace the _Query request URL_ parameter with the following if you want to get only the issues that are assigned to you:

  ${serverUrl}/issues?set_filter=1&assigned_to_id=me
