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 resolve extractor --language=<lang> <options>...
[Deep plumbing] Determine the extractor pack to use for a given language.
[Mandatory] The name of the extractor to locate.
A list of directories under which extractor packs may be found. The directories can either be the extractor packs themselves or directories that contain extractors as immediate subdirectories.
If the path contains multiple directory trees, their order defines precedence between them: if the target language is matched in more than one of the directory trees, the one given first wins.
The extractors bundled with the CodeQL toolchain itself will always be
found, but if you need to use separately distributed extractors you need
to give this option (or, better yet, set up
--search-path in a
per-user configuration file).
(Note: On Windows the path separator is
Don't print any output, but exit with code 0 if the extractor is found, and code 1 otherwise.
Select output format. Choices include:
text (default): Print the path to the found extractor pack to
json: Print the path to the found extractor pack as a JSON string.
betterjson: Print details about the found extractor pack as a JSON
Show this help text.
[Advanced] Give option to the JVM running the command.
(Beware that options containing spaces will not be handled correctly.)
Incrementally increase the number of progress messages printed.
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.
