Graylog Plugin Development Setup

(Daniel) #1

Hello Graylog Community,

I was hoping that I could get a little assistance on getting my plugin development environment setup.

I have been following the Plugin Development guide at:

After downloading the latest master branch on the Meta Project, I noticed that the master branch no longer uses the scripts/bootstrap scripts.

So instead I tried the instructions a try and got the latest version of the cli tool from releases.
graylog-project bootstrap github://Graylog2/graylog-project.git
didn’t work as it wasn’t a valid repo name so I adjusted to the actual repo name and ran:
graylog-project bootstrap

This downloaded the repos, but the server component didn’t appear ready to run in IntelliJ.

Looking into the Pull requests(, I saw someone had mentioned that you needed to compile the server component first before intelliJ could run the server by doing the following:
cd graylog-plugin-repos/graylog2-server
mvn compile
cd …/graylog-plugin-pipeline-processor
mvn compile

The 2nd directory doesn’t exist, but it the first appears to have worked with a build success at the end.However, once I opened IntelliJ, it still didn’t look like the runner module classpath was available.

Anyone run into anything similar and find a way around?

Currently I am running on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and using openjdk 8

Thank You!

Anyone out there able to help me out?



I had a lot a problem with my environment too. I think the tool graylog-project doesn’t work properly so here my solution:

  • Download a Graylog release (2.4.3 in my example)
  • Unzip the file
  • Use: mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=org.graylog -DarchetypeArtifactId=graylog-plugin-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=2.4.3 in your graylog2-server-2.4.3 directory
  • Answer the questions in interactive mode
  • And here we go !

I’m not at all a specialist of Graylog or plugin development but I hope my answer will help you. Please let me know if it be so.
