h1. HowTo setup automatic refresh of repositories in Redmine on commit


Since of version 0.9.0, you can use an HTTP submission, either GET or POST, to automatically refresh Redmine after you committed your modification in your repository.


* _/sys/fetch_changesets?key=<your service key>_ fetches changesets for all active projects
* _/sys/fetch_changesets?id=<project identifier>&key=<your id&gt;&amp;key=&lt;your service key>_ fetches changesets from the repository of a specific project

See #2925 for original feature request.

h2. Step 1 : configure Redmine to accept the request

Web service for repositories must by activated in the Administration menu and the generated key will have to be used by the caller in Step 2.

h2. Step 2 : setup a post-commit script on the SCM server

You have to setup a post-commit script which will call the previous URL.

h3. Subversion

Simply add a post-commit (or post-commit.cmd on a Windows system) script file in the hooks sub-directory which contains the HTTP request call :


curl "http://<redmine url>/sys/fetch_changesets?key=<your service key>"

Or, on a Windows system (2 files) :

* post-commit.cmd :
cscript "%~dp0refresh_redmine.vbs" //Nologo >> "%~dp0refresh_redmine.log" 2>&1

* refresh_redmine.vbs :
private const REDMINE_SERVICE_KEY = "<your service key>"

Call HTTPPost("http://<redmine url>/sys/fetch_changesets", "key=" & REDMINE_SERVICE_KEY)

Private Function HTTPPost(sUrl, sRequest)
set oHTTP = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP") "POST", sUrl,false
oHTTP.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
oHTTP.setRequestHeader "Content-Length", Len(sRequest)
oHTTP.send sRequest
HTTPPost = oHTTP.responseText
End Function
