       Salt SSH allows for salt routines to be executed using only SSH for transport


              Print the version of Salt that is running.

              Show program’s dependencies and version number, and then exit

       -h, --help
              Show the help message and exit

       -c CONFIG_DIR, --config-dir=CONFIG_dir
              The  location  of  the  Salt  configuration  directory. This directory contains the
              configuration files for Salt master and  minions.  The  default  location  on  most
              systems is /etc/salt.

              Raise any original exception rather than exiting gracefully. Default: False.

       -r, --raw, --raw-shell
              Execute a raw shell command.

              Define  which roster system to use, this defines if a database backend, scanner, or
              custom roster system is used. Default is the flat file roster.

              Define an alternative location for the default roster file  location.  The  default
              roster  file  is  called  roster  and  is found in the same directory as the master
              config file.

              New in version 2014.1.0.

       --refresh, --refresh-cache
              Force a refresh of the master side data cache of the target’s data. This is  needed
              if  a target’s grains have been changed and the auto refresh timeframe has not been

              Set the number of concurrent minions to communicate with. This  value  defines  how
              many  processes  are  opened  up  at a time to manage connections, the more running
              process the faster communication should be, default is 25.

              Pass in extra files to include in the state tarball.

              One or comma-separated list of extra Python  modulesto  be  included  into  Minimal

              One or comma-separated list of extra Python modulesto  be included into Thin Salt.

       -v, --verbose
              Turn on command verbosity, display jid.

       -s, --static
              Return the data from minions as a group after they all return.

       -w, --wipe
              Remove the deployment of the salt files when done executing.

       -W, --rand-thin-dir
              Select  a  random  temp dir to deploy on the remote system. The dir will be cleaned
              after the execution.

       -t, --regen-thin, --thin
              Trigger   a   thin   tarball   regeneration.   This   is    needed    if     custom
              grains/modules/states have been added or updated.

              Path to a python2 binary which has salt installed.

              Path to a python3 binary which has salt installed.

              Pass a JID to be used instead of generating one.

   Authentication Options
              Specify the SSH private key file to be used for authentication.

       -i, --ignore-host-keys
              By  default  ssh  host keys are honored and connections  will ask for approval. Use
              this option to disable StrictHostKeyChecking.

              Fully ignores ssh host keys which by default are honored and connections would  ask
              for approval. Useful if the host key of a remote server has changed and would still
              error with –ignore-host-keys.

              Set the default user to attempt to use when authenticating.

              Set the default password to attempt to use when authenticating.

              Interactively ask for the SSH password with no echo - avoids  password  in  process
              args and stored in history.

              Set  this  flag  to attempt to deploy the authorized ssh key with all minions. This
              combined with –passwd can make initial deployment of keys very fast and easy.

              Use the only authentication identity files configured in the ssh_config files.  See
              IdentitiesOnly flag in man ssh_config.

       --sudo Run command via sudo.

   Scan Roster Options
              Comma-separated list of ports to scan in the scan roster.

              Scanning socket timeout for the scan roster.

   Logging Options
       Logging options which override any settings defined on the configuration files.

       -l LOG_LEVEL, --log-level=LOG_LEVEL
              Console logging log level. One of all, garbage, trace, debug, info, warning, error,
              quiet. Default: warning.

              Log file path. Default: /var/log/salt/ssh.

              Logfile logging log level. One of all, garbage, trace, debug, info, warning, error,
              quiet. Default: warning.

   Target Selection
       The  default matching that Salt utilizes is shell-style globbing around the minion id. See

       -E, --pcre
              The target expression will be interpreted as a PCRE regular expression rather  than
              a shell glob.

   Output Options
       --out  Pass  in an alternative outputter to display the return of data. This outputter can
              be any of the available outputters:
                 highstate, json, key, overstatestage, pprint, raw, txt, yaml, and many others.

              Some outputters are formatted only for data returned from specific  functions.   If
              an  outputter is used that does not support the data passed into it, then Salt will
              fall back on the pprint outputter and display the  return  data  using  the  Python
              pprint standard library module.

                 If  using  --out=json,  you  will  probably  want --static as well.  Without the
                 static option, you will get a separate JSON string per minion which  makes  JSON
                 output  invalid  as a whole.  This is due to using an iterative outputter. So if
                 you want to feed it to a JSON parser, use --static as well.

       --out-indent OUTPUT_INDENT, --output-indent OUTPUT_INDENT
              Print the output indented by the provided value in spaces. Negative values  disable
              indentation. Only applicable in outputters that support indentation.

       --out-file=OUTPUT_FILE, --output-file=OUTPUT_FILE
              Write the output to the specified file.

       --out-file-append, --output-file-append
              Append the output to the specified file.

              Disable all colored output

              Force colored output

                 When using colored output the color codes are as follows:

                 green denotes success, red denotes failure, blue denotes changes and success and
                 yellow denotes a expected future change in configuration.

       --state-output=STATE_OUTPUT, --state_output=STATE_OUTPUT
              Override the configured state_output  value  for  minion  output.  One  of  ‘full’,
              ‘terse’, ‘mixed’, ‘changes’ or ‘filter’. Default: ‘none’.

       --state-verbose=STATE_VERBOSE, --state_verbose=STATE_VERBOSE
              Override  the  configured  state_verbose  value  for  minion output. Set to True or
              False. Default: none.
