Install the Custom Workflows plugin

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

NOTE: The Approach A sections referred to below do not apply to Bitnami native installers. Users of Bitnami native installers should refer only to the Approach B sections.

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

  • Navigate to the Redmine installation directory. Depending on your installation type, execute the following commands:

    • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages):

        $ cd installdir/redmine
    • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations):

        $ cd installdir/apps/redmine/htdocs/
  • 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 installdir/ restart
  • Sign in to your Redmine installation and navigate to the “Administration -> Custom Workflows” section to configure the new plugin.
