Redmine-Mylyn integration

Redmine-Mylyn integration for Eclipse allows you to manage your Redmine issues straight from Eclipse.

Using the integration you can:

  • create and update issues
  • comment, reassign or close issues
  • filter issues based on the their attributes
  • receive notifications on new or updated issues

Build status on Travis CI: Build Status


Redmine-Mylyn integration requires 2 components to work:

  1. Redmine plugin (connector) - is installed inside Redmine server and publishes an API
  2. Eclipse plugin - acts like a client for API from (1) plugin

The Mylyn project in particular has always called the component that adds support for another server a "connector", and Redmine usually calls additional components "plugin" - alas, the original software project got this the wrong way around and called the server-side component a connector and the client side component a plugin. Confusion persists unto this day.

Connector Installation

  1. Install connector inside Redmine server

    For Redmine 2.x install Connector from:

    For Redmine 3.x install Connector from:

  2. Enable REST API in Redmine server

    This is required, because Eclipse plugin uses REST API to authenticate user and perform requests.

    To enable REST API go to yours redmine Administration -> Settings -> Authentication tab and toggle on: Enable REST web service and press Save

Plugin Installation

  1. Download latest release from GitHub releases: ZIP with built plugin as P2 repo

  2. Install it into Eclipse using instructions from section "(1) auto install" - in summary:

    Eclipse Menu -> Help -> Install New Software -> Add -> Archive
    and then choose downloaded .zip file
  3. Add Task Repository of type Redmine and provide redmine Url with Login and Password


To manipulate log levels for plugin classes, place your logback.xml file in following path:


In your custom logback.xml you can denote log file location using:


In both cases the log file will be created next to your logback.xml file, only the log filename will be different. FYI HTTP traffic is not logged through SLF4j/Logback, since http-commons-3.x uses Common Logging and the "jcl-over-slf4j" jar is not attached to this plugin.

Sample logback.xml content

	<appender name="FILE" class="ch.qos.logback.core.FileAppender">
		<layout class="ch.qos.logback.classic.PatternLayout">
			<Pattern>%date %level %logger{10} %msg%n</Pattern>
	<logger name="net.sf.redmine_mylyn" level="DEBUG" >
		<appender-ref ref="FILE" />
