This content describes the most recent release of the CodeQL CLI. For more information about this release, see https://github.com/github/codeql-cli-binaries/releases.
To see details of the options available for this command in an earlier release, run the command with the
--help option in your terminal.
codeql pack ls <options>... -- <dir>
[Experimental] [Deep plumbing] List the CodeQL packages rooted at this directory. This directory must contain a qlpack.yml or .codeqlmanifest.json file.
The root directory of the package or workspace, defaults to the current working directory. If this parameter points to a directory containing a qlpack.yml, then this operation will run on only that CodeQL package. If this parameter points to a directory containing a codeql-workspace.yml, then this operation will run on all CodeQL packages in the workspace.
Select output format, either
text (default) or
List of CodeQL pack groups to include or exclude from this operation. A qlpack in the given workspace is included if:

- It is not in any group listed with a minus sign
Show this help text.

Incrementally decrease the number of progress messages printed.
[Advanced] Explicitly set the verbosity level to one of errors,
warnings, progress, progress+, progress++, progress+++. Overrides
[Advanced] Write detailed logs to one or more files in the given directory, with generated names that include timestamps and the name of the running subcommand.
(To write a log file with a name you have full control over, instead
--log-to-stderr and redirect stderr as desired.)
[Advanced] Controls the location of cached data on disk that will
persist between several runs of the CLI, such as downloaded QL packs and
compiled query plans. If not set explicitly, this defaults to a
.codeql in the user's home directory; it will be
created if it doesn't already exist.
