Redmine, Bug Tracking and Flexible Project Management Tool

A while ago, me and some of my colleagues were talking about Bug Tracking systems in order to enhance and enforce Quality Assurance and to have a well-organized and easy to use bug reporting and monitoring tool.

There are many open source web-based bug tracking systems such as Bugzilla, Trac, BugTracker.NET and more …

Some of bug and issue tracking systems extend its functionality to cover Project Management area such as Redmine.

You might take a look at comparison of issue tracking systems.

As my team already has installed Redmine, In this article, I’m going to summarize its features.

Redmine is free, open source and cross-platform Bug Tracking and Project Management tool developed using Ruby on Rails . It provides features like Gantt chart and Calendar to manage project schedule, start and end dates of project’s elements, show dependencies and that stuff related to project management.

I quoted Redmine’s features as it mentioned in Redmine web site:

* Multiple projects support
* Flexible role based access control
* Flexible issue tracking system
* Gantt chart and calendar
* News, documents & files management
* Feeds & email notifications
* Per project wiki
* Per project forums
* Time tracking
* Custom fields for issues, time-entries, projects and users
* SCM integration (SVN, CVS, Git, Mercurial, Bazaar and Darcs)
* Issue creation via email
* Multiple LDAP authentication support
* User self-registration support
* Multilanguage support
* Multiple databases support

You can find more information about these features through Redmine features and an online demo here.

Redmine can be deployed using a native installer, as a virtual machine, in the cloud or as a module over an already installed infrastructure Stack as described in BitNami Redmine Stack.
