See the Release Notes for the latest version information.

To Build:

Primary build is supported with either gradle or maven2+.

Gradle Build

./gradlew build


  • rundeckapp/target/rundeck-X.Y.war
  • rundeck-launcher/launcher/build/libs/rundeck-launcher-X.Y.jar

Maven2 Build

MAVEN_OPTS="-Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=192m" mvn clean package


  • rundeckapp/target/rundeck-X.Y.war
  • rundeck-launcher/launcher/target/rundeck-launcher-X.Y.jar


  • the underlying Grails build requires the MaxPermSize to be increased in the MAVEN_OPTS as shown above.

Other builds

The documentation can be built with pandoc.

Build the documentation. Artifacts in docs/en/dist:

cd docs

You can build .rpm or .deb files (requires pandoc to build the docs):

Build the RPM. Artifacts in packaging/rpmdist/RPMS/noarch/*.rpm

make rpm

Build the .deb. Artifacts in packaging/*.deb:

make deb

To build clean:

make clean


There are several install options: a self-contained jar file, or RPM, or Debian.

To start from the rundeck-launcher.jar, put it in a directory named ~/rundeck, then execute:

java -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xmx1024m -Xms256m -server -jar rundeck-launcher-2.0.0.jar

If you'd like to install via RPM, you can use Yum:

rpm -Uvh 
yum install rundeck

OR install directly from RPM:

rpm -ivh rundeck-2.0.0-xxx.rpm rundeck-config-2.0.0-xxx.rpm

Once the RPM is installed, execute:

sudo /etc/init.d/rundeckd start

The server should launch on port 4440, with default username/password of admin/admin.

For Debian, download the .deb from the downloads page, then run:

dpkg -i rundeck-2.0.0-x.deb
  • For more info and configuration information, see the Rundeck docs.
