# Overview

## Cagey

A command-line interface for wrangling Velociraptor swarms and automating some common operations.

## Implementation

This implementation does not rely on any APIs except the conventions of the main HTTP-based interface. It parses and submits forms.

## Features

cagey supports two sub-commands, reswarm and rebuild-all.

### Rebuild All

This routine will find swarms matching the filter and peform a forced rebuild, re-release, and swarm on those swarms such that they are rebuilt whether or not Velociraptor believes there's any advantage to rebuilding. This routine will become largely obviated if Velociraptor issue 19 is implemented.

### Reswarm

This routine will invoke the swarm operation on a swarm at a given tag:

cagey reswarm MyApp-Recipe_.* 3.0 -x Recipe_Skipped


It takes as its parameters a filter of swarm name, a version number, and optionally some excludes.

The name filter is case sensitive, but the excludes are case insensitive.

When the command is executed, the routine will first report which swarms will be affected and give a 5 second timer in case the matches were not what the user intended. If the routine is not cancelled, it will proceed to swarm each swarm in turn.
