To install the plugin, execute the following commands from the root of your redmine directory:
cd plugins git clone git://github.com/alexbevi/redmine_dropbox_attachments.git bundle install
More information on installing Redmine plugins can be found at redmine.org
After the plugin is installed you will need to restart Redmine for the plugin to be available.
The plugin must be configured from
Administration > Plugins > Dropbox Attachment Storage > Configure
Before Redmine can store files on a shared Dropbox folder, it must be authorized. This is done by clicking Authorize Redmine with Dropbox, then selecting Allow from Dropbox’s authorization page.
Specifying a Base Directory
By default, the plugin will write to your Dropbox’s
Apps > redmine_files directory.
If you specify a Base Directory value, that subdirectory will be creted under Apps/redmine_files and used to store attachements for the plugin.
Storing Attachments for Multiple Redmine’s
Since you can only register a single instance of this plugin with Dropbox, if you want to store attachments for multiple installations of Redmine, the steps are:
1) Authorize the plugin ONCE with Dropbox
2) Copy the Dropbox Token and Dropbox Secret values from the authorized installation
3) Paste the token/secret values to each additional installation
Note that if you have multiple installations, it’s a good idea to specify different base directories.
This plugin is heavily based on the Redmine S3 plugin. Thanks to all the contributors there who’ve made this such an easy plugin to build ;)
I also used the Redmine DropBox plugin to find some quick answers to interacting with dropbox.
