Redmine Integration

If you use Redmine as your project planner, the integration with UiPath® Test Manager allows you to synchronize test relevant requirements between Test Manager and your Redmine instance. In addition, you can create defects in Redmine directly from test results in Test Manager.

The integration works for both Redmine Cloud and Server and the connection is defined at the project level for both tools.

Conditions

  • The name and description of an issue that you create in Redmine is synchronized as a requirement in Test Manager.
  • The synchronized requirements in Test Manager are read-only aside from any attachments, objects labels or links to your test cases.
  • Deletion of synchronized requirements in Test Manager is not possible.

Prerequisites

  • Redmine Cloud or Server account.
  • Test Manager administrator account.
  • Redmine project
