Usage

DMSF is designed to act as project module, so it must be checked as an enabled module within the project settings.

Search will now automatically search DMSF content when a redmine search is performed, additionally a "Dmsf files" checkbox will be visible, allowing you to search DMSF content exclusively.

Linking DMSF files from Wiki entries:

Link to file with id 17:

{{dmsf(17)}}

Link to file with id 17 with link text "File"

{{dmsf(17,File)}}

The DMSF file/revision id can be found in link for file/revision download from within redmine.

Linking DMSF folders from Wiki entries:

Link to folder with id 5:

{{dmsff(5)}}

Link to folder with id 5 with link text "Folder"

{{dmsff(5,Folder)}}

The DMSF folder id can be found in the link when opening folders within Redmine.

You can also publish Wiki help description: In the file /public/help/wiki_syntax_detailed.html, after the document link description/definition:

<ul>
  <li>
    DMSF:
    <ul>
      <li><strong>{{dmsf(17)}}</strong> (link to file with id 17)</li>
      <li><strong>{{dmsf(17,File)}}</strong> (link to file with id 17 with link text "File")</li>
      <li><strong>{{dmsf(17,File,10)}}</strong> (link to file with id 17 with link text "File" and link pointing to revision 10)</li>
      <li><strong>{{dmsff(5)}}</strong> (link to folder with id 5)</li>
      <li><strong>{{dmsff(5,Folder)}}</strong> (link to folder with id 5 with link text "Folder")</li>
    </ul>
    The DMSF file/revision id can be found in link for file/revision download from within redmine.<br />
    The DMSF folder id can be found in the link when opening folders within Redmine.
  </li>
</ul>

Setup / Upgrade

Before installing ensure that the Redmine instance is stopped.

  1. In case of upgrade BACKUP YOUR DATABASE first
  2. Put redmine_dmsf plugin directory into plugins
  3. Initialize/Update database: rake redmine:plugins:migrate RAILS_ENV="production"
  4. The access rights must be set for web server, example: chown -R www-data:www-data /opt/redmine/plugins/redmine_dmsf Ensure that the path used in the above is adjusted for your installation
  5. Restart web server
  6. You should configure plugin via Redmine interface: Administration -> Plugins -> DMSF -> Configure
  7. Assign DMSF permissions to appropriate roles

Fulltext search (optional)

If you want to use fulltext search features, you must setup file content indexing.

It is necessary to index DMSF files with omega before searching attemts to recieve some output:

omindex -s english -l 1 -U / --db {path to index database from configuration} {path to storage from configuration}

This command must be run on regular basis (e.g. from cron)

Example of cron job (once per hour at 8th minute):

8 * * * * root /usr/bin/omindex -s english -l 1 -U / --db /opt/redmine/files/dmsf_index /opt/redmine/files/dmsf

Use omindex -h for help.

Uninstalling DMSF

Before uninstalling the DMSF plugin, please ensure that the Redmine instance is stopped.

  1. cd [redmine-install-dir]
  2. rake redmine:plugin:migrate NAME=redmine_dmsf VERSION=0
  3. rm plugins/redmine_dmsf -Rf

After these steps re-start your instance of Redmine.
