Description

Hello,

Currently Redmine allows me to upload files to the directory in the same host.

But I have many files in other hosts/resources and I'd a simple way to link the those files. I don't want to upload every files to a single host (that costs me the bandwidth :))

Could Redmine allow me to upload 'link' as a file?

Thank you for consideration.

I'm not sure to understand your request.
Do you want these files to be mirrored on the Redmine host or to simply provide links to these files that would stay on a different host ?

Sorry for making some confusions. I have some files on another hosts. I'd like that these files appear in Redmine's FILE module as links.

Redmin's FILE module
 |-- show files that're uploaded by Redmine
 \-- show links to files on another host

This makes Redmine FILE module more useful.

Thank you for consideration.

want want to add external links as file in redmine. I don't know whether this makes sense, but I think this could be helpful to reduce the traffic of the server where redmine is hosted.
