Rundeck GIT Resource Model

This is a plugin for Rundeck > 2.10.0 that uses Git to store resources model file (based on Jgit).


Run the following command to built the jar file:

./gradlew clean build


Copy the rundeck-git-plugin-x.y.x.jar file to the $RDECK_BASE/libext/ directory inside your Rundeck installation.


You need to set up the following options to use the plugin:

Repo Settings

  • Base Directory: Directory for checkout

  • Git URL: Checkout URL. See git-clone specifically the GIT URLS section. Some examples:

    • ssh://[user@]host.xz[:port]/path/to/repo.git/
    • git://host.xz[:port]/path/to/repo.git/
    • http[s]://host.xz[:port]/path/to/repo.git/
    • ftp[s]://host.xz[:port]/path/to/repo.git/
    • rsync://host.xz/path/to/repo.git/
  • Branch: Checkout branch

  • Resource model File: Resource model file inside the github repo. This is the file that will be added to Rundeck resource model.

  • File Format: File format of the resource model, it could be xml, yaml, json

  • Writable: Allow to write the remote file


  • Git Password: Password to authenticate remotely
  • SSH: Strict Host Key Checking: Use strict host key checking. If yes, require remote host SSH key is defined in the ~/.ssh/known_hosts file, otherwise do not verify.
  • SSH Key Path: SSH Key Path to authenticate

The first method of authentication is the private key.If the private key is not defined, it will take the password.

  • The primary key will work with SSH protocol on the Git URL.
  • The password will work with http/https protocol on the Git URL (the most of the case, the username is needed on the URI, eg: http[s]://username@host.xz[:port]/path/to/repo.git/ when you use password authentication)


  • The plugin needs to clone the full repo on the local directory path (Base Directory option) to get the file that will be added to the resource model.
  • Any time that you edit the nodes on the GUI, the commit will be perfomed with the message Edit node from GUI (it is not editable)
