Before redmine v4.1 the /projects.xml API returned active and closed projects.
With v4.1 and upwards only active projects are returned and there isn't an option to include them (as far as I can read from the corresponding src file).

It seems the change happened with this commit:

#1 Updated by Mizuki ISHIKAWA 10 months ago

I have described three ways to get information about status closed (id: 5). Could you please try with this?

  • Save a custom query configured to include the closed project and set its query. http://<Redmine url>/projects?query_id=<query id>&key=<API key>
  • http://<Redmine url>/projects.xml?f[]=status&op[status]==&v[status][]=1&v[status][]=5&key=<API key>
  • http://<Redmine url>/projects.xml?status=5&key=<API key> results(closed projects) + http://<Redmine url>/projects.xml?status=1&key=<API key> results(open projects)
There is a workaround, but I think the problem that the document(Rest_Projects) is not updated even though the specifications of the project API have changed significantly needs to be improved.
  • Add a method for adding filter conditions
  • Add a description that previously included projects that were closed by default, but are no longer included

https://<Redmine url>/projects.xml?f[]=status&op[status]==&v[status][]=1&v[status][]=5&key=<API key>

You can also override the default status filter with en empty filter value to get a list of all projects (open, closed or archived):

GET /projects.xml?status=

To get only open or closed projects, you can also use the following short filter to get open projects (status = 1) or closed projects (status = 5):

GET /projects.xml?status=1|5

#5 Updated by Marius BALTEANU 2 months ago
