Redissue is a plugin for Dokuwiki who make a link beetween Dokuwiki and a Redmine issue. He can get data from your redmine server and display name, status and subject of your issue.

He can manage access rights (see below) if you have API key of a Redmine's Admin account.


Download this plugins into your ${dokuwiki_root}/lib/plugins folder and restart dokuwiki.

Install the plugin using the Plugin Manager and the download URL above, which points to latest version of the plugin. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.


Redissue needs a php API to work. You have to download PHP-Redmine-API inside the ROOT of redissue's install or inside /usr/share/php. If you use redproject too, the second option is better, as you have just to download Php-redmine-API one time.

Also PHP-Redmine-API requires PHP curl extension, not required by dokuwiki itself.

$ mkdir vendor
$ cd vendor
$ git clone
$ cd php-redmine-api
$ git checkout v1.5.5


  • First syntax:
<redissue id='#number_issue' text="text if no Rights or API" />

Note : The text parameter only appears if the user has no rights to see the issue or if no API key is recorded.

  • Second Syntax:

Note : This syntax is only needed if you want add additional notes. Description of issue is already displayed by Redissue.

<redissue id='#number_issue' text="text if no Rights or API"> Your description...</redissue>

Multiple servers

Server option override the server url and the API key. You must define these in server.json file at root of redissue folder. You can set as many servers as you want :-P

Example of server.json file:

    "first": {
        "url": "",
        "api_token": "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789"
    "second": {
        "url": "",
        "api_token": "zyxwvutsrqponmlkjihgfedcba9876543210"

Then simply add the name of server you want to reach:

<redissue server="first" id='#number_issue' text="the link's text" />

Note: If server key is bad (e.g: call _flirt_ instead _first_), redissue take the one who is set in dokuwiki settings. If url or api_token are wrong, an error message is display instead of redissue.

Override title

If you wish to override title, simply add title:

<redissue id='#number_issue' text="the link's text" title="short_title" />

Hide / Show additional information

For Dokuwiki theme (Bootstrap theme has already collapse function), you can hide additionnal information to make it short at 1 or display more with 0. This override the choice made in settings :

<redissue id='#number_issue' text="the link's text" short="1" />


Dokuwiki style :

Bootstrap style :
