= Gerrit Code Review - Command Line Tools
== Client
Client commands and hooks can be downloaded via scp, wget or curl
from Gerrit's daemon, and then executed on the client system.
To download a client command or hook, use scp or an http client:
$ scp -p -P 29418 ~/bin/
$ scp -p -P 29418 .git/hooks/
$ curl -Lo ~/bin/gerrit-cherry-pick
$ curl -Lo .git/hooks/commit-msg
For more details on how to determine the correct SSH port number,
see link:user-upload.html#test_ssh[Testing Your SSH Connection].
=== Commands
Download and cherry-pick one or more changes (commits).
=== Hooks
Client hooks can be installed into a local Git repository, improving
the developer experience when working with a Gerrit Code Review
Automatically generate `Change-Id:` tags in commit messages.
== Server
Aside from the standard Git server side actions, Gerrit supports
several other commands over its internal SSH daemon. As Gerrit does
not provide an interactive shell, the commands must be triggered
from an ssh client, for example:
$ ssh -p 29418 gerrit ls-projects
For more details on how to determine the correct SSH port number,
see link:user-upload.html#test_ssh[Testing Your SSH Connection].

=== Trace
For executing SSH commands tracing can be enabled by setting the
`--trace` and `--trace-id <trace-id>` options. It is recommended to use
the ID of the issue that is being investigated as trace ID.
$ ssh -p 29418 gerrit create-project --trace --trace-id issue/123 foo/bar
It is also possible to omit the trace ID and get a unique trace ID
$ ssh -p 29418 gerrit create-project --trace foo/bar
Enabling tracing results in additional logs with debug information that
are written to the `error_log`. All logs that correspond to the traced
request are associated with the trace ID. The trace ID is printed to
the stderr command output:
TRACE_ID: 1534174322774-7edf2a7b
Given the trace ID an administrator can find the corresponding logs and
investigate issues more easily.
=== Setting a deadline
When invoking an SSH command it's possible that the client sets a deadline
after which the request should be aborted. To do this the
`--deadline <deadline>` option must be set on the request. Values must be
specified using standard time unit abbreviations ('ms', 'sec', 'min', etc.).
$ ssh -p 29418 gerrit create-project --deadline 5m foo/bar
