Target version:-
Resolution:Invalid Affected version:2.0.0


In our company, there are more than one issue tracking systems
That means the commit messages will be like "Fix AID #1", "BID #2", ...etc
However, the issue ID belongs to other issue tracking system are not the one in the Redmine issue tracking system.
That will lead to that the link in "AID #1" will link to incorrect issue in Redmine issues

Could it be possible to filter this kind of linking from commit messages?

Below is my Redmine info
Redmine version 2.0.1.stable.9733
Ruby version 1.8.7 (i386-linux)
Rails version 3.2.3
Environment production
Database adapter MySQL
Redmine plugins:
no plugin installed

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Resolution set to Invalid

In administration -> settings -> repositories, change "Referencing keywords" from * to something like BID. Then only "BID #2" in the commit message will link the issue to the commit.

Sorry to reopen it that I still need to clarify something
I know the configuration in "Referencing keywords" can make the commit appears in related Redmine issue page
However, it will still make AID #2, CID #2, ... link to the Redmine issue#2, right?
What I mean is to avoid AID #2, CID #2, ... from linking to Redmine issue#2.
Can 2.0-stable make it possible?

  • Status changed from Reopened to Closed
  1. Are you speaking about commits/issues relations?
  2. Or maybe you just don't want that #2 be turned into a link in the commit log display in Redmine?

If 1., there's a test for this (source:trunk/test/unit/changeset_test.rb@9636#L54).
If 2., sorry it's not possible.
