This option let users use the auto-login feature. Default: Disabled
This option lets you enable/disable new users self registration:
- disabled: users are not allowed to register
- account activation by email: new users receive an email containing a link used to active their accounts (users must provide a valid email address).
- manual account activation (default): new users' accounts are created but need administrator approval. Administrators receive an email informing them that an account is pending their approval.
- automatic account activation: new users can log in as soon as they have registered.
Minimum password length¶
Let's the admin decide on the minimum length of the chosen passwords.
If this option is checked, lost password functionality is available. Default: Yes
Allow OpenID login and registration¶
Provides the admin a way to disable OpenID logins and registrations.
Note that the setting is immutable as long as the dependency for the feature (an installed copy of the
ruby-openid gem) is not met. You can simply install it using
gem install ruby-openid.
New projects are public by default¶
The default state of newly created projects. The project can still be made non-public while creating new project or after the creation of the project.
Generate sequential project identifiers¶
This setting will let Redmine propose sequential project identifiers for you. This can still be manually changed only while creating the project, not afterward.
Role given to a non-admin user who creates a project¶
Defines which role is given by default to a non-admin user who creates a project (this only applies when you have configured Redmine permissions in such a way that non-admin users are actually privileged to create projects).
Allow cross-project issue relations¶
If set to true, relations between issues from different projects can be created. Default: No
Display subprojects issues on main projects by default¶
If set to true, subprojects issues will be displayed by default on the issue list, calendar and gantt of the main projects (Since r1198). Default: Yes
Issues export limit¶
Maximum number of issues contained in CSV and PDF exports. Default: 500
Default columns displayed on the issue list¶
This setting lets you define which columns are displayed on the issue lists by default.
Only custom fields that are marked as 'For all projects' can be selected here.
Emission mail address¶
Email address used in the "From" field of messages sent to users.
Blind carbon copy recipients (bcc)¶
If set to true, email notification will be sent as Blind carbon copy. Default: Yes
Plain text mail¶
If set to true, emails are sent in plain text only (no HTML).
Here you can enter some text that will be appended to the emails sent by the application.
See for detailed instructions about these settings RedmineReceivingEmails.
Truncate emails after one of these lines¶
These setting can be used to remove signatures from incoming emails.
Enable WS for incoming emails¶
Redmine can be configured to allow issue creation or comments via email. In order to use that feature, you have to enable the API that receives emails. That is where this setting is for. Default: Off
Within this setting you can enter a secret key used for the issue creation or comments via email feature.
If this option is activated, the application automatically retrieves the new revisions when a user consults the repository.
You can disable this option and automate the call to Repository#fetch_changesets using cron to regularly retrieve the revisions for all of the repositories in the background.
ruby script/runner "Repository.fetch_changesets" -e production
You can also call this task from your repository in a post-commit or post-receive hook, so that changesets are fetched after each commit.
Here is a tutorial for doing so with git: http://finalcog.com/remine-git-post-receive
Enable WS for repository management¶
This option should be activated only if you installed the script for automatic SVN repository creation. Default: No
Here you can (de)select the SCM-systems Redmine should "provide" to the individual projects. This setting is useful if you only support several SCM-systems (e.g. only Git or only SVN).
This option lets you specify preferred encodings for repository files (multiple values allowed, comma separated). These encodings are used to convert files content and diff to UTF-8 so that they're properly displayed in the browser.
When entering multiple encodings, the first valid encoding regarding the file content is used.
For French users, this option can be for example set to:
UTF-8, ISO 8859-15, CP1252
For Japanese users:
ISO-2022-JP, EUC-JP, UTF-8, SHIF_JIS, WINDOWS-31J
Maximum number of revisions displayed on file log¶
It provides a way to limit the amount of revisions which are retrieved from the SCM for a certain, browsed path.
Referencing issues in commit messages¶
When fetched from the repositories, commit messages are scanned for referenced or fixed issue IDs.
These options lets you define keywords that can be used in commit message to reference or fix issues automatically, and the status to apply to fixed issues.
Default keywords are:
- for referencing issues: refs, references, IssueID
- for fixing issues: fixes, closes
There's no default status defined for fixed issue. You'll have to specify it if you want to enable auto closure of issues.
If you want to reference issues without using keywords, enter a single star: * in the Referencing keywords setting. In this case, any issue ID found in the message will be linked to the changeset.
Example of a working commit message using default keywords:
This commit refs #1, #2 and fixes #3
This message would reference issues 1 and 2 and automatically fix issue 3.
After a keyword issue IDs can be separated with a space, a comma or &.
