Retrieving issues data from external tool.
i'm trying to develop a tool to retrive Redmine issues data.
I've noticed that Redmine generates a "key" parameter that is in GET on the URL to request a specific ATOM feed.
How i can generate the key parameter?
Do i need the username and the password of the user?
I will be able to generate enough complex requests (example: issues of this user, for this project, that are open)?
If this is not possible can i do his using the CSV files?
Otherwise i think i will nedd to go and access directly the Database, but is a solution tha i prefer to not use.
Thansk for any help.
There is a REST API coming, the API keys are generated and can be retrieved on the settings page by each user in the right-hand sidebar (if the REST API is activated).
How can i check if the REST API is activated ?
Moreover my issue is to create the key in an external tool.
Where is the API "code" that i can use?
AFAIK the key are randomly generated, sorry.
But then, how Redmine matches the key with the user?
Have a look at the tokes table.
I suppose you meant "tokens" ;)
Thanks for the help, i will study!
