Found out the solution. This is not a single line command though

1) Find out the mpack.staging.path by running

cat /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties | grep -i mpack 

2) Go to the mpack.staging.path directory (default is : /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/mpacks )

cd /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/mpacks

3) Iterate through all the directories in the mpack staging directory excpet the "cache" directory and read the mpack.json in each directory

The mpack.json has the name of the mPack.

You can write a small script to iterate through the directories and print all the mpack names

Thanks,

Aditya

Try listing the installed packages using yum command:
yum list installed | grep mpack

Hi @Sindhu,

I'm sorry, my question was not so clear. I was trying to list all the installed mPacks in ambari which we usually install using

ambari-server install-mpack <args>

brutal I know but a oneliner

cd $(cat /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties | grep -i mpack|awk -F'=' '{print$2}') ; ls -l|grep -v cache |grep -v mpacks_replay.log |grep -v total |awk '{print$9}' |xargs
