  • Bulid number linked to build result page.
  • Console icon linked to console page.

Show build history on activity.

  • jobname, build number, test-result(only number of items) and changesets.

Show build result on issue.

  • job-name, build-number, result and built date and time. when Hudson builds revisions associated issues.

Search issues related particular build

You can search issues related job and build using filter.
Plugin chases issues by taking following step.
Hudson Job -> Hudson Build -> Related Changeset -> Revision -> Issue
Hudson Build and Related Changeset are too much, so plugin limits number of Builds and Changesets per each Hudson Job.
You can change limit settings on settings/plugin/redmine_hudson.

rake task 'redmine_hudson:fetch'

You can get build results using rake task 'redmine_hudson:fetch'.
If you use rake task, please uncheck 'AutoFetch' setting.
You can change 'AutoFetch' setting on settings/plugin/redmine_hudson.

Clean up stored data

You can delete old data ( builds, changesets, test results ).
Settings are like Hudson.

  • rotate days ( 1day = keep today's data )
  • rotate nums

Settings for each projects

  • Hudson url (can use https)
    User can specify url separately, for plugin access and user access.
  • auth user, password ( 0.1.1 higher )
  • can stop plugin getting test results and changesets. (Getting test results and changesets needs a good amount of time.)
  • choose job
  • compact mode ( show only job name and latest build)
  • keyword and url for health report

Settings for plugins (all projects)

Go Administration -> Plugins -> 'Redmine Hudson Plugin' Configure.

  • You can choose format to write job description. HTML or Textile.
  • AutoFetch Mode. Plugin fetches information from Hudson during action 'index'.
  • Number of Builds per each Hudson Job. ( for search issues )
  • Number of Changesets per each Hudson Job. ( for search issues )

Important reminder


Recommend Hudson 1.313
If you use old version of Hudson, plugin may not get test results and changesets.
Plugin store build information, if plugin can't get test results or changesets.
But, If plugin fail, never get test results, changesets again.

Using IE8

Please use Compatibility View in IE8.

Exclusive Control

Plugin has no exclusive control, so plugin doesn't work when redmine works on multi-process.
Hopefully i fix it.

Something is wrong with plugin

you should try to delete data from database.
Use 'delete history' button in setting page.
