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 git -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'2.16.3'" [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 git -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'2.16.3'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

- name: Install git
  win_chocolatey:
    name: git
    version: '2.16.3'
    source: INTERNAL REPO URL

cChocoPackageInstaller git
{
    Name     = "git"
    Version  = "2.16.3"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"
}

  ensure   => '2.16.3',
  provider => 'chocolatey',
  source   => 'INTERNAL REPO URL',

See infrastructure management matrix for Chocolatey configuration elements and examples.

NOTE

This package is likely a meta/virtual (*) or an installer (*.install) or portable (*.portable) application package.

  • Meta/virtual (*) - has a dependency on the *.install or the *.portable package - it is provided for discoverability and for other packages to take a dependency on.
  • Portable (*.portable/*.commandline (deprecated naming convention)/*.tool (deprecated naming convention)) - usually zips or archives that require no administrative access to install.
  • Install (*.install/*.app (deprecated naming convention)) - uses native installers, usually requires administrative access to install.

Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 23 Mar 2018.

Description

Git for Windows focuses on offering a lightweight, native set of tools that bring the full feature set of the Git SCM to Windows while providing appropriate user interfaces for experienced Git users and novices alike.

Features

  • Git BASH: Git for Windows provides a BASH emulation used to run Git from the command line. *NIX users should feel right at home, as the BASH emulation behaves just like the "git" command in LINUX and UNIX environments.
  • Git GUI: As Windows users commonly expect graphical user interfaces, Git for Windows also provides the Git GUI, a powerful alternative to Git BASH, offering a graphical version of just about every Git command line function, as well as comprehensive visual diff tools.
  • Shell Integration: Simply right-click on a folder in Windows Explorer to access the BASH or GUI.

Package parameters

  • /GitOnlyOnPath - Puts gitinstall\cmd on path. This is also done by default if no package parameters are set.
  • /GitAndUnixToolsOnPath - Puts gitinstall\bin on path. This setting will override /GitOnlyOnPath.
  • /NoAutoCrlf - Ensure 'Checkout as is, commit as is'. This setting only affects new installs, it will not override an existing .gitconfig.
  • /WindowsTerminal - Makes vim use the regular Windows terminal instead of MinTTY terminal.
  • /NoShellIntegration - Disables shell integration ( "Git GUI Here" and "Git Bash Here" entries in context menus).
  • /NoCredentialManager - Disable Git Credential Manager by adding $Env:GCM_VALIDATE='false' user environment variable.
  • /NoGitLfs - Disable Git LFS installation.
  • /SChannel - Configure Git to use the Windows native SSL/TLS implementation (SChannel) instead of OpenSSL. This aligns Git HTTPS behavior with other Windows applications and system components and increases manageability in enterprise environments.

Notes

  • The package uses default install options minus cheetah integration and desktop icons. Cheetah prevents a good upgrade scenario, so it has been removed.

Log in or click on link to see number of positives.

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.
