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 dbforge-sql-dg -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 dbforge-sql-dg -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

Description

A powerful generator of meaningful test data
dbForge Data Generator for SQL Server allows for quick automated production of realistic test data in any amount. The software includes more than 200 predefined generators of SQL data and allows for adding custom generators. It is worth mentioning the Python Generator that uses an IronPython script for data generation. It has its predefined Basic settings and also Custom settings. Users can change them both to adjust the generator's work for their custom needs. It also supports the RegexGenerator, allowing you to use regular expressions with Python Generator.
New custom generators can be created, configured, and shared across the team.
The flexible configuration of the generators ensures that the test data will match the purpose and stay consistent across all tables. Besides, the data in columns are based on data in other columns for better performance of all tests. Users can automate the data generation routines and run them by schedule.
The Data Generation tool is a part of the SQL Tools package. Besides, it is one of the features available in dbForge Studio for SQL Server. Users can also get this tool separately and integrate it into SSMS to use the powers of data generation in their habitual IDE.

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.
