Customer Plugin

This is a plugin for Redmine that can be used to track basic customer information for each project. It was created so I could track which project belonged to which customer.


For this first release, I implemented the most basic features.

  • Store Customer data
  • Associate a Customer for each project
  • Permissions to control user access to data
