  2. Input Redmine URI, API access key and your redmine project name. Use the [Paste] button for each other than keyboard shortcuts. Note that the ''Redmine project name'' means the project id, not the project names: Project Id Image
  3. After filling out all the items, you can push [Setup Redmine]. If connecting to Redmine is succeeded, you will see menu buttons on the [Redmine Tickets] view, e.g. [Add Ticket]. Setup Succeeded Image

Creating a ticket

  1. If you push [Add Ticket] button, a browser will launch and open the Redmine page where you can create new tickets.
  2. In the ticket page of Redmine, you can update, fill out or set properties of the ticket, e.g. the ticket subject, the priority, etc. After creating tickets, pushing [Sync: astah*<-Redmine] button in the [Redmine Tickets] tab will import those tickets information.

Showing ticket lists

  • One ticket is associated with one diagram. When you move from a diagram to another, the ticket list will be also updated to show ones associated with the selected diagram.
  • [All Tickets] button will show all the tickets associated with all the diagrams in the currently-open Astah project.
  • Clicking any [Item] column will sort listed items accordingly.
  • Width of each column is manually adjustable.
  • Clicking Ticket number or ticket subject will open your browser to take you to the ticket page in Redmine. After you update the ticket information, you can sync it by pushing [Sync: Astah <- Redmine] button.
  • Clicking Diagram name in the table will give a focus on the diagram. At the same time, the table will be updated to show the ticket list associated with that diagram.

Ticket data in an Astah project

  • Redmine information i.e. URI, API access key and redmine project id and all the ticket information associated with diagrams will be saved in the Astah file when closing Astah project. When you open the Astah project, those data in the table will be restored.
    • If the connection to the Redmine is not established when you opening Astah project, those data will not be restored.
    • Existing bug: When you open an Astah project right after launching Astah, restoring Redmine information may fail sometimes. In this case, open any other project you have, and then open the project you wanted again, then the data will be restored.

Others

  • Width of columns of the table will be restored in Astah project when you push [Sync: Astah<-Redmine] and when you save an Astah project, those width information will be saved in Astah file.

Existing bug

  • When you open an Astah project right after launching Astah, restoring Redmine information may fail sometimes. In this case, open any other project you have, and then open the project you wanted again, then the data will be restored.
