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 westwindwebsurge -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'2.0.3'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Description

West Wind WebSurge is an easy to use Http REST Client and Load Testing tool. It makes it easy to capture, import or manually create a series of Http requests, and test them either interactively individually for service discovery and logic testing, or test under heavy load with many simultaneous sessions for stress testing.

A key feature of WebSurge is that it's easy to use and understand without complex setup and configuration. You can be productive checking URLs or runing load tests in minutes. The goal is to make this process quick and easy, so that you use it frequently to check your sites for performance and stability. You can easily share sessions files and even export and import easily from other tools like PostMan or Fiddler. Or import sessions from OpenAPI/Swagger, or capture Web browser sessions interactively.

Load test sessions run a session of Http requests under heavy load and report easy to understand results back via a summary screen. You can export the result report, or the raw test data. Finally a command line tool is available to automate load tests from the terminal and capture results for automation or tests.

WebSurge is also an alternative to the popular PostMan tool, with a more interactive and streamlined user interface, and load testing capability out of the box.

License Agreement for West Wind WebSurge

West Wind WebSurge comes in several license modes: 

* Free Personal and Evaluation
* Single User and Commercial Use
* Site License

West Wind WebSurge is source open with source code available on GitHub, 
but it is a licensed product. A fully functional free version is available 
for personal and evaluation use, but commercial use requires purchase 
of a license.

Personal and Evaluation License

The free personal and evaluation version is unrestricted 
and has all the features and functionality of the registered version, 
but shows occasional freeware notices in the user interface. Tampering 
with or removing of the notice is not allowed with the free personal 
evaluation license.

Commercial License

For commercial use of West Wind Web Surge a license is required. Commercial 
use is considered use within any commercial, government, religious, non-profit

the freeware notices. Each licensed user must have a separate license, but 
a single user may use multiple copies of West Wind WebSurge on multiple machines, 
given that only one copy at a time is in use.

An organizational site license is available to allow any number of users from a 
single organization to run unlimited numbers of West Wind WebSurge instances 
within that single organization.

Any purchased license is valid for the duration of the major release that it was 
purchased for (ie. 1.00-1.99) and free upgrades are available for minor version 
releases. Free major version upgrades are also available within one year of purchase
of a license.

Version 2 is a major version update that completely overhauls the User Interface and core Http engine. Version 2 uses a modern, more interactive and much more responsive user interface that makes it easier to create, capture, import and test individual requests. It also adds a new, revamped Http engine that is more efficient and can pump out more Http requests for load testing with lighter CPU load. You can now also import from OpenApi/Swagger, PostMan and Fiddler.
