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://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://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade logexpert -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 logexpert -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

    From bennewcomb:
    [** FOR Chocolatey ONLY **]
    I've found this to be a worthy and necessary tool job after job, computer after computer. Is it bug-hunting season? This is a low investment-high return application that, if added to your stack, will enhance application debugging with minimal time and effort. You can watch multiple files at once and determine quickly when each is updated, optionally tailing them all so you can watch the logging output as it's being written. You can also set editor formatting rules to decorate useful sections to visually separate groups of text while reviewing the file, and even have it stop when it finds something of interest. This tool saves me time and helps me highlight certain files in the forest of log file statements for easier visibility and faster identification of relevant log lines. A tail program, if you're not a superuser or sysadmin, is software that appears to continually scroll to the bottom of any file you load, making the newest updates immediately visible on the screen withing requiring you to refresh the file.

    Installation Directory: $(Split-Path -parent $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition)
    On my computer, it lands in {chocolatey}\lib\logexpert.1.7.0
