Searching cookbook versions


#1

I must be missing something, but i can’t seem to find a decent way of
executing a knife search against a specific version of a cookbook. I’ve
tried looking everywhere and can’t seem to find anything related.

Anybody have any ideas?

cookbook version data is not indexed and so not searchable.

One simple approach: use knife download to obtain a full set of all
cookbook versions (put versioned_cookbooks true in your
knife.rb). Then you can grep/ack, etc.
