Using the REST API with cURL

curl is a command-line tool for transferring data using various protocols. It can be used to interact with the Redmine REST API.

Here is a simple example of a command that can be used to update an issue:

curl -v -H "Content-Type:application/json" -X PUT --data "@388.json" -u login:password http://redmine/issues/388.json

The file that contains the data sent to Redmine (388.json in the example above) would look like this:

  "issue": {
    "subject": "subject123",
    "notes": "Changing the subject" 
Note: it's required to set the Content-Type header according to the format of the data you are sending. It must be set to one the following values:
  • application/json
  • application/xml
