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

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 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 istioctl -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'1.12.1'" [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 istioctl -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'1.12.1'" 

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

Exit $exitCode

Istio is an open platform for providing a uniform way to integrate
microservices, manage traffic flow across microservices, enforce policies
and aggregate telemetry data. Istio's control plane provides an abstraction
layer over the underlying cluster management platform, such as Kubernetes.

Istio is composed of these components:

  • Envoy - Sidecar proxies per microservice to handle ingress/egress traffic
    between services in the cluster and from a service to external
    services. The proxies form a secure microservice mesh providing a rich
    set of functions like discovery, rich layer-7 routing, circuit breakers,
    policy enforcement and telemetry recording/reporting

    > Note: The service mesh is not an overlay network. It
    > simplifies and enhances how microservices in an application talk to each
    > other over the network provided by the underlying platform.

  • Mixer - Central component that is leveraged by the proxies and microservices
    to enforce policies such as authorization, rate limits, quotas, authentication, request
    tracing and telemetry collection.

  • Pilot - A component responsible for configuring the proxies at runtime.

  • Citadel - A centralized component responsible for certificate issuance and rotation.

  • Citadel Agent - A per-node component responsible for certificate issuance and rotation.

  • Galley- Central component for validating, ingesting, aggregating, transforming and distributing config within Istio.

Istio currently supports Kubernetes and Consul-based environments. We plan support for additional platforms such as
Cloud Foundry, and Mesos in the near future.

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.
