Target version:-
Resolution:Invalid Affected version:


I spent hours trying to find why my Redmine started returning broken HTML instead of XML when I send the same valid REST API request, I as did before (

I finally found that "XLS export" plugin ( is responsible for this problem.

I had to delete the plugin to enable REST API (remove /opt/redmine/vendor/plugins/redmine_default_columns folder ).

I have latest Trunk version of Redmine. Other people reported the same problem with Redmine 0.9.5.

Can you report this bug to the plugin author. This bug tracker is for the Redmine core and we don't have control over the plugin's code.

Eric, it seems that if the plugin overwrites some views (in my case views\issues\index.rhtml), plugin views folder should contain .builder file as well - even if this file not modified. Otherwise .builder file from original path (app\views\issues\index.xml.builder ) is ignored.

I think it should be noted in documentation on plugins
