Deployment Method:

NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade teamcityagent -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade teamcityagent -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

- name: Install teamcityagent
  win_chocolatey:
    name: teamcityagent
    version: '6.0.1'
    source: INTERNAL REPO URL
    state: present

See docs at https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/modules/win_chocolatey_module.html.


chocolatey_package 'teamcityagent' do
  action    :install
  source   'INTERNAL REPO URL'
  version  '6.0.1'
end

See docs at https://docs.chef.io/resource_chocolatey_package.html.


cChocoPackageInstaller teamcityagent
{
    Name     = "teamcityagent"
    Version  = "6.0.1"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"
}

Requires cChoco DSC Resource. See docs at https://github.com/chocolatey/cChoco.

  ensure   => '6.0.1',
  provider => 'chocolatey',
  source   => 'INTERNAL REPO URL',

Description

TeamCity Build Agent for jetbrains.com/teamcity. It is a piece of software which listens for the commands from the TeamCity server and starts the actual build processes. Install requires at least serverUrl parameter, e.g. -params 'serverurl=http://...', also supported are agentName, agentDir, ownPort and possibly others. If looking to see what changes in the agent config files during the run use -v argument to choco.exe.
