Assets plugin for redmine

Provides a central location to view all your project's assets.


This will enable the Assets tab in your project. The assets tab groups assets by your different asset types. The asset types currently supported are Issues, Messages, Documents, Versions (from the Files module), and WikiPages. Only the types that have uploaded files in the current project will be displayed. Drilling down into an asset type will show an alphabetical list of assets, grouped by category if applicable.


  • Rails 3


  1. Follow the Redmine plugin installation steps at:
  2. Cd to your redmine plugins/ dir
  3. Git-clone the plugin from this repo into a folder in there: git clone git:// redmine_assets_plugin (You must name your directory with underscores as shown here, or the plugin will throw a fatal error)
  4. Run the plugin migrations rake redmine:plugins:migrate
  5. Restart your Redmine web servers (e.g. mongrel, thin, mod_rails)
  6. Login to your Redmine install as an Administrator
  7. Setup the permissions for the assets module for your roles
  8. Enable the module on a per-project basis as needed.

NOTE: the plugin directory has to be "redmine_assets_plugin"


To activate in your project:

  • Navigate to your project's "Settings" page
  • Under the "Modules" tab, check the box next to "Assets list" and save


You can configure additional asset types via the config/mappings.yml file. Mappings to the content type's project_ids and categories are found here. Contact me or submit a pull request for additional asset types.

  • Leaving out the "category" key in mappings.yml will disable categorization.
  • Leaving out the "project_id" key will default to project_id.

As a bare minimum, the mappings.yml file requires the name of the asset type, followed by an empty hash:

NewAssetType: {}

This will display the assets for class NewAssetType with a project_id field and no categories.


When you click the Assets Tab in your project, you will see all the content types in your project that have assets uploaded to them: Asset Landing Page

If anyone has attached any files to the Document content type, they will be listed here, organized by Document Category Document Assets

All files attached to Issues will be listed here, organized by Issue Category Issue Assets
