graylog-project CLI

Travis-CI Build Status License

This is a CLI tool for managing a graylog-project setup. Building Graylog involves managing multiple repositories, and this tool helps streamline that process.


  • Download the binary for your platform from the releases page
  • Copy the downloaded binary to a directory in your PATH (i.e. cp graylog-project.linux $HOME/bin/graylog-project
  • See graylog-project instructions on how to use it


The CLI uses a manifest file to determine which repositories it should be managing. These manifests can be found in the manifests/ directory. When you run the checkout command, for example, the cli will checkout all the repos mentioned in the config at the versions specified.

Additionally, there is the apply-manifest file. This file is used during releases. It contains the new version that all managed repos should be set to after the release. It can also optionally contain the name of a new branch to create across all repos.
