Create Issue Relation
I am trying to add this following functionality to Redmine via Custom Workflows:
If the user mentions another issue in the description or subject, a relation of the two issues is created automatically.
This is my code which is executed before saving:
Matchstring = '' if description_changed? if self.description Matchstring = self.description end end if self.notes Matchstring = Matchstring + self.notes end if Matchstring > '' Relations_Found = Matchstring.scan(/#[0-9]+/) Relations_Found.each do |r| rissue = Issue.find_by_id(r.gsub('#','').to_i) if rissue unless self.relations.include?(rissue) rel = IssueRelation.new( :issue_to => rissue, :issue_from => self, :relation_type => 'relates' ) rel.save end end end end
The problem is, the relation is only added to the issue currently being edited.
The related issue gets no journals entry, although the relation is shown in the issue info at the top.
Also it is possible to add a relation in the related issue to the first issue (which already should exist), so that there are two relations effectively - one in each of the issues.
Can you show me how to relate the two issues properly?
