News

Supported by Redmine starting from version 1.1

Manager

Create methods

redminelib.managers.ResourceManager.create(**fields)

>>> news
<redminelib.resources.News #8 "Foo">

new

redminelib.managers.ResourceManager.new()

Creates new empty News resource but saves it to the Redmine only when save() is called, also calls pre_create() and post_create() methods of the Resource object. Valid attributes are the same as for create() method above.

Returns:Resource object
>>> news = redmine.news.new()
>>> news.title = 'Foo'
>>> news.description = 'foobar'
>>> news.save()
<redminelib.resources.News #8 "Foo">

Warning

Redmine’s News API doesn’t return a news object after create operation. Due to the fact that it goes against the behaviour of all other API endpoints, Python-Redmine has to do some tricks under the hood to return a resource object which involve an additional API request. If that isn’t desired one should use the following technique:

with redmine.session(return_response=False):
    news = redmine.news.new()
    news.title = 'Foo'
    news.description = 'foobar'
    news.save()
