Redmine API

Redmine exposes some of its data through a REST API. This API provides access and basic CRUD operations (create, update, delete) for the resources described below.

Authentication

Most of the time, the API requires authentication. To enable the API-style authentication, you have to check Enable REST API in Administration -> Settings -> Authentication. Then, authentication can be done in 2 different ways:
  • using your regular login/password via HTTP Basic authentication.
  • using your API key which is a handy way to avoid putting a password in a script. The API key may be attached to each request as a "key" parameter or it may be passed in as a username with a random password. You can find your API key on your account page ( /my/account ) when logged in, on the right-hand pane of the default layout.
