Rundeck is an open source automation service with a web console, command line tools and a WebAPI. It lets you easily run automation tasks across a set of nodes.

See the Release Notes for the latest version information.

To Build:

Primary build is supported with gradle. More info in the wiki.

Gradle Build

./gradlew build


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

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 -Xmx1024m -Xms256m -XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=256m -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.
