(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 rainforest-cli -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 rainforest-cli -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

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

A command line interface to interact with Rainforest QA. Source and more documentation is available here

Global Options

  • --token [your-rainforest-token] - your API token if it's not set via the RAINFOREST_API_TOKEN environment variable
  • --skip-update - Do not automatically check for CLI updates


  • --browsers ie8,chrome - specify browsers you wish test. This overrides the test level settings. Valid browsers can be found in your account settings.
  • --tag TAG_NAME - filter tests by tag. Can be used multiple times for filtering by multiple tags.
  • --site-id SITE_ID - filter tests by a specific site. You can see a list of your site IDs with rainforest sites.
  • --folder ID/--filter ID - filter tests in specified folder.
  • --feature ID - filter tests in a feature.
  • --run-group ID - run/filter based on a run group. When used with run, this trigger a run from the run group; it can't be used in conjunction with other test filters.
  • --environment-id - run your tests using this environment. Otherwise it will use your default environment
  • --conflict OPTION - use the abort option to abort any runs in progress in the same environment as your new run. Use the abort-all option to abort all runs in progress.
  • --bg - creates a run in the background & exits immediately after. Cannot be used together with --max-reruns.
  • --crowd [default|automation|automation_and_crowd|on_premise_crowd]
  • --wait RUN_ID - wait for an existing run to finish instead of starting a new one, and exit with a non-0 code if the run fails. rainforest-cli will exit immediately if the run is already complete.
  • --fail-fast - return an error as soon as the first failed result comes in (the run always proceeds until completion, but the CLI will return an error code early). If you don't use it, it will wait until 100% of the run is done.
  • --custom-url - specify the URL for the run to use when testing against an ephemeral environment. Temporary environments will be automatically deleted 72 hours after they were last used.
  • --description "CI automatic run" - add an arbitrary description for the run.
  • --release "1a2b3d" - add an ID to associate the run with a release. Commonly used values are commit SHAs, build IDs, branch names, etc.
  • --junit-file - Create a JUnit XML report file with the specified name. Must be run in foreground mode, or with the report command.
  • --import-variable-csv-file /path/to/csv/file.csv - Use with run and --import-variable-name to upload new tabular variable values before your run to specify the path to your CSV file.
  • --import-variable-name NAME - Use with run and --import-variable-csv-file to upload new tabular variable values before your run to specify the name of your tabular variable.
  • --single-use - Use with run or csv-upload to flag your variable upload as single-use. See --import-variable-csv-file and --import-variable-name options as well.
  • --disable-telemetry stops the cli sharing information about which CI system you may be using, and where you host your git repo (i.e. your git remote). Rainforest uses this to better integrate with CI tooling, and code hosting companies, it is not sold or shared. Disabling this may affect your Rainforest experience.
  • --max-reruns - If set to a value greater than 0 and a test fails, the CLI will re-run failed tests a number of times before reporting failure. If --junit-file [filename] is also used, the JUnit reports of reruns will be saved under [filename].1, [filename].2 etc.
