Deployment Method: Individual Install, Upgrade, & Uninstall

To install Mule ESB CE, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To upgrade Mule ESB CE, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To uninstall Mule ESB CE, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


Deployment Method:


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 muleesb -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 muleesb -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

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

Exit $exitCode

- name: Install muleesb
    name: muleesb
    version: '3.8.1'
    state: present

See docs at

chocolatey_package 'muleesb' do
  action    :install
  source   'INTERNAL REPO URL'
  version  '3.8.1'

See docs at

cChocoPackageInstaller muleesb
    Name     = "muleesb"
    Version  = "3.8.1"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"

Requires cChoco DSC Resource. See docs at

package { 'muleesb':
  ensure   => '3.8.1',
  provider => 'chocolatey',
  source   => 'INTERNAL REPO URL',

Requires Puppet Chocolatey Provider module. See docs at

Package Approved

This package was approved by moderator AdmiringWorm on 12 Feb 2018.


Mule is a lightweight integration platform that allows you to connect anything anywhere. Rather than creating point-to-point integrations between systems, services, APIs and devices, you can use Mule to intelligently manage message-routing, data mapping, orchestration, reliability, security and scalability between nodes. Plug other systems and applications into Mule and let it handle all the communication between systems, enabling you to track and monitor everything that happens. Mule requires a 32 bit JDK 8 in order to run.

Optional installation commands:

choco install muleesb -params "unzipLocation=*path*" to specify the root directory for the Mule service. This defaults to C:\Program Files (x86)\Mulesoft\Community.
Note: An mule-standalone-3.8.1 folder is always created, so the actual install path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Mulesoft\Community\mule-standalone-3.8.1 for the default case or path\mule-standalone-3.8.1 with a custom option.
## Summary
How do I create packages? See

If you are submitting packages to the community feed (
always try to ensure you have read, understood and adhere to the create
packages wiki link above.

## Automatic Packaging Updates?
Consider making this package an automatic package, for the best 
maintainability over time. Read up at

## Shim Generation
Any executables you include in the package or download (but don't call 
install against using the built-in functions) will be automatically shimmed.

This means those executables will automatically be included on the path.
Shim generation runs whether the package is self-contained or uses automation 

By default, these are considered console applications.

If the application is a GUI, you should create an empty file next to the exe 
named 'name.exe.gui' e.g. 'bob.exe' would need a file named 'bob.exe.gui'.

If you want to ignore the executable, create an empty file next to the exe 
named 'name.exe.ignore' e.g. 'bob.exe' would need a file named 

## Self-Contained? 
If you have a self-contained package, you can remove the automation scripts 
entirely and just include the executables, they will automatically get shimmed, 
which puts them on the path. Ensure you have the legal right to distribute 
the application though. See 

You should read up on the Shim Generation section to familiarize yourself 
on what to do with GUI applications and/or ignoring shims.

## Automation Scripts
You have a powerful use of Chocolatey, as you are using PowerShell. So you
can do just about anything you need. Choco has some very handy built-in 
functions that you can use, these are sometimes called the helpers.

### Built-In Functions

A note about a couple:
* Get-BinRoot - this is a horribly named function that doesn't do what new folks think it does. It gets you the 'tools' root, which by default is set to 'c:\tools', not the chocolateyInstall bin folder - see
* Install-BinFile - used for non-exe files - executables are automatically shimmed... - see
* Uninstall-BinFile - used for non-exe files - executables are automatically shimmed - see

### Getting package specific information
Use the package parameters pattern - see

### Need to mount an ISO?

### Environment Variables
Chocolatey makes a number of environment variables available (You can access any of these with $env:TheVariableNameBelow):

 * TEMP/TMP - Overridden to the CacheLocation, but may be the same as the original TEMP folder
 * ChocolateyInstall - Top level folder where Chocolatey is installed
 * ChocolateyPackageName - The name of the package, equivalent to the `<id />` field in the nuspec (0.9.9+)
 * ChocolateyPackageTitle - The title of the package, equivalent to the `<title />` field in the nuspec (0.10.1+)
 * ChocolateyPackageVersion - The version of the package, equivalent to the `<version />` field in the nuspec (0.9.9+)
 * ChocolateyPackageFolder - The top level location of the package folder  - the folder where Chocolatey has downloaded and extracted the NuGet package, typically `C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\lib\packageName`.

 * ChocolateyPackageParameters - Parameters to use with packaging, not the same as install arguments (which are passed directly to the native installer). Based on `--package-parameters`. (
 * CHOCOLATEY_VERSION - The version of Choco you normally see. Use if you are 'lighting' things up based on choco version. (0.9.9+) - Otherwise take a dependency on the specific version you need. 
 * ChocolateyForceX86 = If available and set to 'true', then user has requested 32bit version. (0.9.9+) - Automatically handled in built in Choco functions. 
 * OS_PLATFORM - Like Windows, OSX, Linux. (0.9.9+)
 * OS_VERSION - The version of OS, like 6.1 something something for Windows. (0.9.9+)

#### Set By Options and Configuration
Some environment variables are set based on options that are passed, configuration and/or features that are turned on:

 * ChocolateyEnvironmentDebug - Was `--debug` passed? If using the built-in PowerShell host, this is always true (but only logs debug messages to console if `--debug` was passed) (0.9.10+)

 * CHOCOLATEY_VERSION_PRODUCT = the version of Choco that may match CHOCOLATEY_VERSION but may be different (0.9.9+) - based on git describe
 * IS_ADMIN = Is the user an administrator? But doesn't tell you if the process is elevated. (0.9.9+)
 * IS_REMOTE = Is the user in a remote session? (0.10.6+)

#### Not Useful Or Anti-Pattern If Used

 * ChocolateyInstallOverride = Not for use in package automation scripts. Based on `--override-arguments` being passed. (0.9.9+)

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).
