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 add <options>... -- <scope/name[@range]>...
[Experimental] Adds a list of QL library packs with optional version ranges as dependencies of the current package, and then installs them.
This command modifies the qlpack.yml file of the current package. Formatting and comments will be removed.
[Mandatory] The scope, name, and optional version range of the pack to add to the dependency list.
If no version range is specified, or if the version range is specified as 'latest', the latest version of the pack is downloaded, and a dependency is added to qlpack.yml that allows any version that is compatible with the downloaded version.
If a single version is specified, that version of the pack is downloaded, and a dependency is added to qlpack.yml that allows any version that is compatible with the specified version.
If a version range is specified, the latest version of the pack that satisfies the specified range is downloaded, and a dependency is added to qlpack.yml with the specified version range.
The root directory of the package.
Authenticate to GitHub Enterprise Server Container registries by passing a comma-separated list of <registry_url>=<token> pairs.
For example, you can pass
to authenticate to two GitHub Enterprise Server instances.
This overrides the CODEQL_REGISTRIES_AUTH and GITHUB_TOKEN environment
variables. If you only need to authenticate to the github.com Container
registry, you can instead authenticate using the simpler
Authenticate to the github.com Container registry by passing a github.com GitHub Apps token or personal access token via standard input.

[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.
