build "org.grails.plugins:release:3.1.3"

 Documentation  Source  Issues


Allows you to publish Grails plugins, either to a public or private repository. It also supports deploying Grails applications and plugins to Maven repositories without the need to use Maven directly.


This is the new name for the Maven Publisher plugin. Its publish-plugin command is the preferred way of releasing Grails plugins and it will replace the existing release-plugin command.

Version 3.0.0 and above require Grails 2.3 or higher. For earlier versions of Grails use version 2.2.1:

plugins {
   build ':release:2.2.1', ':rest-client-builder:1.0.3', {
      export = false
