I'm currently using the cardano-cli that comes with Daedalus, which according to cardano-cli --version is v1.30.1

Is there any way to update the CLI? I'm trying to access the --required-signer flag which I don't believe was released until the latest alpha version.

  • To answer my own question, you can build your own version of cardano-cli by cloning the cardano-node Github repo and running a nix-shell, then cabal build cardano-cli. Although I'm not sure how to access this cli outside of the nix-shell. Commented Oct 30, 2021 at 10:27

1.30.1 is the latest version of the cli. If you're trying to add a required signer, you might want to look at the transaction sign operation on the cardano-cli.


Looks like you've worked through this issue.

For anyone else that finds themselves here: You can download the binaries (Win/Lin/Mac) or make from source. Details for each approach are on the github repo https://github.com/input-output-hk/cardano-node
