Install the Custom Workflows plugin

NOTE: If you connected to the instance via the Google Cloud Console, you will need to change your user to the bitnami user. Insert the following command before executing the steps below: sudo su bitnami

Before installing the Redmine Custom Workflows plugin, create a backup. Once your backup is complete, follow these steps:

  • Navigate to the Redmine installation directory:

      $ cd /opt/bitnami/redmine
  • Navigate to the plugins directory and get the latest Custom Workflows version:

      $ cd plugins
      $ git clone
  • Navigate to the Redmine installation directory and install the plugin:

      $ cd -
      $ bundle exec rake redmine:plugins:migrate RAILS_ENV=production

NOTE: It could display a warning message about the log production file. In that case, run the following commands:

$ sudo chown :bitnami log/production.log
$ sudo chmod g+w log/production.log
  • Restart services for the changes to take effect:

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart
  • Sign in to your Redmine installation and navigate to the “Administration -> Custom Workflows” section to configure the new plugin.
