To get an overview of all Gradle tasks in our project, we need to run the tasks task. Since Gradle 5.1, we can use the --group option followed by a group name. Gradle will then show all tasks belonging to the group and not the other tasks in the project.

Suppose we have a Gradle Java project and want to show the tasks that belong to the build group:

$ gradle tasks --group build
> Task :tasks

------------------------------------------------------------
Tasks runnable from root project - Sample
------------------------------------------------------------

Build tasks
-----------
assemble - Assembles the outputs of this project.
bootBuildInfo - Generates a META-INF/build-info.properties file.
bootJar - Assembles an executable jar archive containing the main classes and their dependencies.
build - Assembles and tests this project.
buildDependents - Assembles and tests this project and all projects that depend on it.
buildNeeded - Assembles and tests this project and all projects it depends on.
classes - Assembles main classes.
clean - Deletes the build directory.
generateGitProperties - Generate a git.properties file.
jar - Assembles a jar archive containing the main classes.
testClasses - Assembles test classes.

To see all tasks and more detail, run gradle tasks --all

To see more detail about a task, run gradle help --task <task>

Deprecated Gradle features were used in this build, making it incompatible with Gradle 6.0.
Use '--warning-mode all' to show the individual deprecation warnings.
See https://docs.gradle.org/5.1.1/userguide/command_line_interface.html#sec:command_line_warnings
