How it works

Upon finishing deploy job, jenkins creates a git tag, so it can track commits that refer to the build.
We can use these tags to track which tickets were deployed.
Date of deploy is stored in custom field of each ticket that was mentioned in commit.
A comment is left for every ticket in release as well for readability.



Install it where your git repo resides. We only support local git repos, so make sure you have enough permissions.

* ``pip install redmine-releasedate``
* Specify redmine access options in ``releasedate.cfg``
* run ``redmine-release-server`` and make it available via http

# releasedate.cfg
url =
token = your_api_token_goes_here
released_at_id = 42 ;custom field id goes here

message = Deployed on %(instance)s at %(date)s in release "%(release_id)s":%(release_url)s
address = ; optional
port = 8080 ; optional


* Pip install ``redmine-releasedate`` on your jenkins server. No configuration is needed.

* Add this to your Jenkins build step (preferably, in `post-build task`_)::

git push --tags
redmine-release http://releasedate_url/ /path/to/repo/ [instance_url]

.. _post-build task:


Create a user with permissions to edit tickets and post notes in your project.
Obtain his API token and put it into ``releasedate.cfg``.
Add custom field to store releasedate information.

* second run of client command will make second comment and overwrite release date, so please make sure
you run ``redmine-release`` only once per deploy.
