Welcome to our introduction on using SLAs in Redmine Reporting

SLA Definition

A Service Level Agreement (SLA) contains the response and resolution time values agreed with a customer or company department that the support team must meet.


By using SLAs, it is possible to measure and / or guarantee the provision of support services within an agreed time frame.


With the SLA feature of the Redmine Reporting Plugin, you can define service level targets based on ticket priorities to better monitor service level compliance.


Agreeing SLA conditions


Incidents that customer X reports to support via ticket can be reported with the following three priorities:

Priority 1 (High):reaction time: 1 working hour, solution time: 5 working hours
Priority 2 (Standard):reaction time: 5 working hour, solution time: 8 working hours
Priority 3 (Low):reaction time: 8 working hour, solution time: 16 working hours

The SLA configuration within the customer project could look like this

Understand how SLAs are applied to issues

When an issue is created or updated, it goes through the workflows you define.

SLA for Redmine

If the SLA function has been activated for a project, the issue will continue to go through the normal workflow. However, it will respond to the SLA triggers (status change) defined by the issue priority


SLA issue workflow

The following graphic shows a simple example process with the following SLA criteria: SLA Priority = Normal: 1 h reaction time, 2 h solution time.

SLA for Redmine The process starts with a new issue (ToDo) and ends when it has been closed (Done)


  • SLAs help to comply with defined guidelines with the customer
  • With the Reporting Plugin they are individually defined per project
  • For SLA policies to work, metrics must be defined for issue priorities.
