Create new project via email

Added by ITlog Support over 6 years ago


I'd like to be able to create a new project by sending an email. I'm able to create issues on an existing projects by fetching emails from an IMAP server, but what I really want is to create new projects.

Is this possible? How can I do it?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Yes, this can be done. I have been doing it for years. You will need to search for the specifics as I do not have them off the top of my head.

I can tell you that a core part of it is the powershell script, this is how I do it in a Windows environemnt, there are other options, but in a rake statement you need the following information.

rake redmine:email:receive_imap RAILS_ENV="production" host=imap.***.com port=993 project=(Name_of_your_project) tracker=(Name_of_your_report) priority=normal status=New username=(any account with rights to create a project password=(That accounts password) ssl=true move_on_success=(I have a folder in my email program to store these) --trace --verbose

AFAIK, Redmine core cannot create new project by mail.
Do you use plugins?
