FAQ

My username and password is correct, but I get 403. What's the problem?

On freshly installed Redmine server, REST API web service is turned off by default. To turn it on, go to browser, open Redmine server URL, log in with administrator, go to Administrator tab > Settings > API tab and turn on Enable REST web service option.

I have a server with self-signed certificate. How to connect?

You can provide a self-signed certificate in login commands:

arcli login inline -s https://path.to.redmine.server -c path/to/cert/server.crt -u username -p password
