NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • 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. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade sifon -y --source="'STEP 3 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 sifon -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

      worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable

      origin of the Work and reproducing the content of the NOTICE file.

      agreed to in writing, Licensor provides the Work (and each
      Contributor provides its Contributions) on an "AS IS" BASIS,
      WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, either express or
      implied, including, without limitation, any warranties or conditions
      of TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, or FITNESS FOR A
      PARTICULAR PURPOSE. You are solely responsible for determining the
      appropriateness of using or redistributing the Work and assume any
      risks associated with Your exercise of permissions under this License.

      negligent acts) or agreed to in writing, shall any Contributor be
      liable to You for damages, including any direct, indirect, special,
      incidental, or consequential damages of any character arising as a
      result of this License or out of the use or inability to use the
      Work (including but not limited to damages for loss of goodwill,
      work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and all
      other commercial damages or losses), even if such Contributor
      has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

   9. Accepting Warranty or Additional Liability. While redistributing
      the Work or Derivative Works thereof, You may choose to offer,
      and charge a fee for, acceptance of support, warranty, indemnity,
      or other liability obligations and/or rights consistent with this
      License. However, in accepting such obligations, You may act only
      on Your own behalf and on Your sole responsibility, not on behalf
      of any other Contributor, and only if You agree to indemnify,

VERIFICATION

Sifon is open-source code project available from this repository:
  https://github.com/MartinMiles/Sifon

Since it is compiled and built from [C#] and runs runs with [NET Framework 4.8], it becomes platform-agnostic and runs on both 32- and 64-bit [Windows 10] systems.

Project website with docs, quick start, demonstration videos and and videoguides:
http://sifon.uk/


Package maintainer is software author himself. The contact details:
  name: Martin Miles
  email: [email protected]
  linkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/martin-miles


Package content:

  Microsoft .NET libraries:
    - Newtonsoft.Json.dll                                                   

  Sifon business logic DLLs:
    - Sifon.Abstractions.dll
    - Sifon.ApiClient.dll
    - Sifon.Code.dll
    - Sifon.Shared.dll

  Executable (references and the above):
    - Sifon.exe

  Folders:
    - Sifon.Plugins - folder for plugins (scripts / DLLs) to be dynamically picked up for execution. Sifon itself can git-clone into this folder from publis community scripts repo.
    - PowerShell - contains Sifon PowerShell module with scripted business logic to run on remote machines (by WinRM), each function has its own file with a verbose explanatory name.


Binaries / MSI
- are available for all the version including historical versions from Release Notes page (https://sifon.uk/docs/ReleaseNotes.md)
- version number is in fact a link for a corresponding version from /downloads folder (i.e. https://sifon.uk/download/Sifon_1.2.4.msi or same pattern)
- binary installers are not included at GitHub repository as they remain in history forever and will extremely grow repo in size. 


Additional notes:
- package created from MSI done with Advanced Installer 17.3
- the installer source for MSI is opensource and available at https://github.com/MartinMiles/Sifon/blob/master/Installation/Installer.aip
- as Sifon is a toolbelt for Sitecore instance administrators with a PowerShell host, it DOES require admin rights on machine
- the software itself does not make much sense without Sitecore installed: the one and only useful feature will remain installing Sitecore in Docker in that case
- on the first run Sifon installs PowerShell module (also called Sifon) into c:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\Sifon folder (required for WinRM management)
- having Sitecore installed isn't necessary to enter the main view, despite user will be asked providing these details on the first run in order to create at least 1 profile
- will launch with a profile created with dummy data, but most functions will obviously be disabled
- Chocolatey Uninstaller: included, as it needs to remove PowerShell module being installed at: c:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\Sifon

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.
