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 choco-cleaner-rt-libbkp.hook -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 choco-cleaner-rt-libbkp.hook -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

Choco Cleaner RT for lib-bkp files deletes the lib-bkp folder which contains previous Chocolatey package versions during upgrades

Choco Cleaner RT (runtime/realtime - you choose) hooks are the natural evolution of my Choco-Cleaner script using hooks available in Chocolatey v1.2.0+. These hooks do micro cleansing by duplicating the features of Choco Cleaner before and after package installs, thus RT. No scheduling. No manually running anything. No need to edit a config file. Just install the choco-cleaner-rt-XXX.hook(s) you want. Choco Cleaner RT hooks run WHEN you install and update packages.

NOTES:

  • Recovered disk space will not be as dramatic as when running Choco-Cleaner since Choco-Cleaner-RT will be running far more often and you'll see smaller results on a per package basis.
  • Some Choco-Cleaner-RT micro cleansing happens on previously installed packages instead of the current one due to technical restrictions; i.e. choco-cleaner-rt-ignores.hook can not delete .ignore files from the current package or Chocolatey will make shims for everything the packager didn't want shimmed.
  • File deletion logging and toggling the displayed info off are possible via a config, see choco-cleaner-rt for more info.
  • A few features of Choco-Cleaner are not going to be supported by CCRT such as orphaned shim checking and deleting of Chocolatey .log and .old files; if you want these features please use Choco-Cleaner.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
