Redmine Stealth Plugin

Build Status

This plugin allows the Redmine administrator to temporarily disable sending email messages when the Redmine content is added or changed, for example, when updating issues or wiki pages. The plugin is intended to allow the administrator to make bulk changes or minor corrections without flooding the inboxes of other users.

Initially, any Redmine user with the corresponding permission could temporarily turn off sending email notifications. This feature has been deliberately disabled in this fork.

The initial author of the plugin is Riley Lynch.


This plugin si compatible with Redmine 3.x and later. Detailed information here: travis


These installation instructions are based on Redmine 2.6.0. For instructions for previous versions, see Redmine wiki.

  1. To install the plugin

    • Download the .ZIP archive, extract files and copy the plugin directory into #{REDMINE_ROOT}/plugins.


    • Change you current directory to your Redmine root directory:

        cd {REDMINE_ROOT}

      Copy the plugin from GitHub using the following command:

        git clone plugins/redmine_stealth
  2. Update the Gemfile.lock file by running the following commands:

      bundle install
  3. This plugin requires a migration. Run the following command to upgrade your database (make a database backup before):

     bundle exec rake redmine:plugins:migrate RAILS_ENV=production
  4. Restart Redmine.

Now you should be able to see the plugin in Administration > Plugins.
