Wazuh provides an automated way of building RPM packages using docker so there is no need for any other dependency.

To create an RPM package follow these steps:


  • Docker

  • Git

Download our wazuh-packages repository from GitHub and go to the rpms directory of the legacy branch.

$ git clone https://github.com/wazuh/wazuh-packages && cd wazuh-packages/rpms && git checkout legacy

Execute the generate_rpm_package.sh script, with the different options you desire. This script will build a Docker image with all the necessary tools to create the RPM and run a container that will build it:

#  ./generate_rpm_package.sh -h
Usage: ./generate_rpm_package.sh [OPTIONS]

    -b, --branch <branch>     [Required] Select Git branch or tag.
    -t, --target <target>     [Required] Target package to build [manager/api/agent].
    --packages-branch         [Required] Branch of the wazuh packages repository.
    -a, --architecture <arch> [Optional] Target architecture of the package [x86_64/i386].
    -r, --revision <rev>      [Optional] Package revision that append to version e.g. x.x.x-rev
    -l, --legacy              [Optional] Build package for CentOS 5.
    -s, --store <path>        [Optional] Set the destination path of package.
    -j, --jobs <number>       [Optional] Number of parallel jobs when compiling.
    -p, --path <path>         [Optional] Installation path for the package. By default: /var.
    -d, --debug               [Optional] Build the binaries with debug symbols and create debuginfo packages. By default: no.
    -c, --checksum <path>     [Optional] Generate checksum on the desired path (by default, if no path is specified it will be generated on the same directory than the package).
    -h, --help                Show this help.

Below, you will find some examples of how to build an RPM package.

# ./generate_rpm_package.sh -b v3.11.4 --packages-branch legacy -s /tmp -t manager -a x86_64 -r my_rev.

This will generate a 3.11.4 Wazuh manager RPM package with revision my_rev for x86_64 systems.

# ./generate_rpm_package.sh -b v3.11.4 --packages-branch legacy -s /tmp -t api -a i386 -r my_rev

This will generate a 3.11.4 Wazuh api RPM package with revision my_rev for i386 systems and store it in /tmp.

# ./generate_rpm_package.sh -b v3.11.4 --packages-branch legacy -t agent -a x86_64 -p /opt

This will generate a 3.11.4 Wazuh agent RPM package with /opt as installation directory for x86_64 systems.
