    • complete list of installed composer packages, including global packages and dependencies.

Source of the information

The information is based on your composer files. So you need to have them available in the environment you plan to use this module. The modules below process the content of the composer files and check in suitable sources for information regarding your set up.

The main functionality comes from these modules:

Requirements and installation


  • You require the composer.json and composer.lock files to be available and readible in the environment you plan to use this module. All information is based on these files.
  • Install at least one of the modules mentioned under "Source of the information". As a development dependency should be fine in most cases.
  • The queuedjob module is a dependency as the checks are scheduled using queuedjobs. This saves you time and work at the end.


Run the following commands to install the package including all suggestions and populate the information initially:

# install the packages
composer require friendsofsilverstripe/silverstripe-maintenance
composer require spekulatius/silverstripe-composer-security-checker
composer require spekulatius/silverstripe-composer-update-checker
composer require spekulatius/silverstripe-composer-versions

# schedule the population of the data
php ./framework/cli-script.php dev/build

# run the queuedjobs
php ./framework/cli-script.php dev/tasks/ProcessJobQueueTask
php ./framework/cli-script.php dev/tasks/ProcessJobQueueTask
php ./framework/cli-script.php dev/tasks/ProcessJobQueueTask

If you don't want to install all packages adjust the command above.


In the admin section of your SilverStripe website you should see a Maintenance section now. Click on this to view the available information. You are required to have admin access to view this information.

Scheduling of updates

You can schedule updates using the queuedjobs module. Click on either 'Composer Security Vulnerability' or 'Composer Update' and scroll to the bottom of the page. There you find a simple form which allows you to define an interval for your automatic updates. Furthermore the update will automatically scheduled on dev/build.
