Clarification on updating a issue.

Added by Vaibhav Sharma 8 months ago

Hi All,

I want to update a particular issue but without using its id in the URL i.e instead of using http://ramsytesting.m.redmine.org/issues/[issue_id].xml for Put operation, I want to use some other URL and pass issue_id in the body like this-

<issue>
<id>51</id>
<subject>eTestStory28OCT</subject>
<description>eTestStory28OCT</description>
</issue>

Please let me know if this is possible. The above url is creating performance issue for me.

Thanks.

To update an issue, you have to send a PUT request to /issues/[id].[format]. You can not send a request to /issues.[format] or /projects/[identifier]/issues.[format] as this endpoint is responsible to create a new issue only.

Updating an issue is usually rather fast in any case. Some things to keep in mind however are:

  • On older Redmine versions (i.e. Redmine < 4.0), email notifications are send as part of the request which might take some time. You can configure one of the async_ Options fir the delivery_method in your @configuration.yml in this case . See EmailConfiguration.
  • With large issue trees (i.e. many issues in a parent-child relation ship), updating attributes of parent and child issues might take some time. Generally, you should avoid large issues trees (with roughly more than 50 issues in a single tree) or disable attribute inheritance in your settings.
