is a mantra, or vibration, that is traditionally chanted

enhancing your calm

What is it?

Magical tool that helps you configure and deploy tiles to an Ops-Manager 1.8+. Currently being developed by RelEng, backlog link is here.


See here for useful examples and documentation.

Some commands such as configure-product accept arguments as JSON. Please refer to the Ops Manager API documentation for examples of the fields that can be provided. The Ops Manager API documentation is available at


To download om go to Releases.

Alternatively, you can install om via apt-get or homebrew from package manager distributions maintained by Stark and Wayne:

# apt-get:
wget -q -O - | apt-key add -
echo "deb stable main" | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/starkandwayne.list
apt-get update

apt-get install om

# homebrew:
brew tap starkandwayne/cf
brew install om

You can also build from source.

Building from Source

You'll need at least Go 1.11, as om uses Go Modules to manage dependencies.

To build from source, after you've cloned the repo, run these commands from the top level of the repo:

GO111MODULE=on go mod download
GO111MODULE=on go build

Go 1.11 uses some heuristics to determine if Go Modules should be used. The process above overrides those herusitics to ensure that Go Modules are always used. If you have cloned this repo outside of your GOPATH, GO111MODULE=on can be excluded from the above steps.
