You also have an option of allowing the reported issue to be resolved automatically when the related test case passes by checking "Resolve reported issues when a failed test case is marked as passed". When you check this you will be prompted to provide the status code that Redmine uses for resolved issues, you need to enter the same for "Status code for resolved".

Project wise integration settings

Go to add issue page, and click on view source and you will see the value for priorities in similar format- <option value="1">Highest</option>, so our value for highest priority is 1. Similarly value for high is 2, for normal is 3 & for low is 4.

To obtain value for a user, click on view source, and you will see the value for assignee in similar format- <option value="10">Shriti Gupta</option>, so our value for user Shriti is 10. You can similarly find values for other users.
