spm ā€” Salt Package Manager Command

Salt Package Manager

Synopsis

spm <command> [<argument>]

Description

spm is the frontend command for managing Salt packages. Packages normally only include formulas, meaning a group of SLS files that install into the file_roots on the Salt Master, but Salt modules can also be installed.

Options

-y, --assume-yes

Assume yes instead of prompting the other whether or not to proceed with a particular command. Default is False.

-f, --force

When presented with a course of action that spm would normally refuse to perform, that action will be performed anyway. This is often destructive, and should be used with caution.

Logging Options

Logging options which override any settings defined on the configuration files.

-l LOG_LEVEL, --log-level=LOG_LEVEL

Console logging log level. One of all, garbage, trace, debug, info, warning, error, quiet. Default: warning.

--log-file=LOG_FILE

Log file path. Default: /var/log/salt/spm.

--log-file-level=LOG_LEVEL_LOGFILE

Logfile logging log level. One of all, garbage, trace, debug, info, warning, error, quiet. Default: warning.
