I have been tasked with providing a plugin to allow Redmine to act as a controller for a 3rd party VCS system's built in issue tracker. In order to reduce situations where orphaned issue records could be created in the 3rd party tool, Hook events need to be called After issues have been saved in Redmine.

At present, I have modified my own Redmine installation's issues_controller.rb file to provide hooks in the new() and edit() methods of the IssuesController class, directly after the redirect_to statements in those methods.

In the add() method, I have done the following:

if @issue.save
  attach_files(@issue, params[:attachments])
  flash[:notice] = l(:notice_successful_create)
  Mailer.deliver_issue_add(@issue) if Setting.notified_events.include?('issue_added')
  redirect_to :controller => 'issues', :action => 'show', :id => @issue
  call_hook(:controller_issues_new_after_save, { :issue => @issue })

... and in edit():

  if !journal.new_record?
    # Only send notification if something was actually changed
    flash[:notice] = l(:notice_successful_update)
    Mailer.deliver_issue_edit(journal) if Setting.notified_events.include?('issue_updated')
  redirect_to(params[:back_to] || {:action => 'show', :id => @issue})
  call_hook(:controller_issues_edit_after_save, { :params => params, :issue => @issue, :time_entry => @time_entry, :journal => journal})

For my own most immediate requirements, this is the minimum I have needed to get the job done, and would very much appreciate if the feature could be added to future releases of Redmine, as this would save me needing to edit Redmine source whenever a new version is release.

I can however envisage situations where before and after events could be needed for issue creation, editing, deletion, or possibly anywhere that issue record changes are submitted.

Eric, the revision @2261 associated with this issue (for the version 0.8.1) wasn't yet merged into 0.8-branche. I was using (:controller_issues_new_after_save, :controller_issues_edit_after_save) api hooks for issues controller using 0.8-branche and them simply did not work.

I make a svn diff to last revision of the 0.8-branche (@2900) and to revision @2261 showing that which was put in your revision wasnt find in 0.8-branche.
