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 gsudo -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.7.2'" [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 gsudo -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.7.2'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

- name: Install gsudo
  win_chocolatey:
    name: gsudo
    version: '0.7.2'
    source: INTERNAL REPO URL
    state: present

See docs at https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/modules/win_chocolatey_module.html.


chocolatey_package 'gsudo' do
  action    :install
  source   'INTERNAL REPO URL'
  version  '0.7.2'
end

See docs at https://docs.chef.io/resource_chocolatey_package.html.


cChocoPackageInstaller gsudo
{
    Name     = "gsudo"
    Version  = "0.7.2"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"
}

Requires cChoco DSC Resource. See docs at https://github.com/chocolatey/cChoco.


package { 'gsudo':
  ensure   => '0.7.2',
  provider => 'chocolatey',
  source   => 'INTERNAL REPO URL',
}

Requires Puppet Chocolatey Provider module. See docs at https://forge.puppet.com/puppetlabs/chocolatey.

Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 09 Aug 2020.

Description

gsudo allows to run commands with elevated permissions within the current console.
It is a sudo equivalent for Windows, with a similar user-experience as the original *nix sudo.

Elevated commands are shown in the caller (non-elevated) console, no switching to another console required.

http://github.com/gerardog/gsudo

Usage

gsudo [command] [arguments]
Executes the specified command, elevated, and returns.

Examples

gsudo notepad c:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
gsudo cmd

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).
