Deployment Method:


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 chocolateygui -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.17.1'" [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 chocolateygui -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.17.1'" 

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

Exit $exitCode

Package Parameters

  • /ShowConsoleOutput - Enables/disables whether or not Chocolatey GUI shows output from the commands being executed when a job is running
  • /DefaultToTileViewForLocalSource - Enables/disables whether or not Chocolatey GUI defauls to tile instead of list view for the local source view
  • /DefaultToTileViewForRemoteSource - Enables/disables whether or not Chocolatey GUI defauls to tile instead of list view for all remote source views
  • /UseDelayedSearch - Enables/disables whether or not Chocolatey GUI uses a live search, which returns results after a short delay without clicking the search button

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).
