Push Command (choco push)
Chocolatey will attempt to push a compiled nupkg to a package feed.
Some may prefer to use
cpush as a shortcut for
NOTE: 100% compatible with older chocolatey client (0.9.8.32 and below)
with options and switches. Default push location is deprecated and
will be removed by v1. In most cases you can still pass options and
switches with one dash (
-). For more details, see
how to pass arguments (
A feed can be a local folder, a file share, the community feed
(https://chocolatey.org/), or a custom/private feed. For web
feeds, it has a requirement that it implements the proper OData
endpoints required for NuGet packages.
choco push [<path to nupkg>] [<options/switches>] cpush [<path to nupkg>] [<options/switches>]
NOTE: If there is more than one nupkg file in the folder, the command
will require specifying the path to the file.
choco push --source https://chocolatey.org/ choco push --source "'https://chocolatey.org/'" -t 500 choco push --source "'https://chocolatey.org/'" -k="'123-123123-123'"
To use this command, you must have your API key saved for the community
feed (chocolatey.org) or the source you want to push to. Or you can
explicitly pass the apikey to the command. See
apikey command help
for instructions on saving your key:
choco apikey -?
A common error is
Failed to process request. 'The specified API key does not provide the authority to push packages.' The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.. This means the package already
exists with a different user (API key). The package could be unlisted.
You can verify by going to https://chocolatey.org/packages/packageName.
Please contact the administrators of https://chocolatey.org/ if you see this
and you don't see a good reason for it.
Options and Switches
NOTE: Options and switches apply to all items passed, so if you are
running a command like install that allows installing multiple
packages, and you use
--version=1.0.0, it is going to look for and
try to install version 1.0.0 of every package passed. So please split
out multiple package calls when wanting to pass specific options.
Includes default options/switches (included below for completeness).
-?, --help, -h Prints out the help menu. -d, --debug Debug - Show debug messaging. -v, --verbose Verbose - Show verbose messaging. --acceptlicense, --accept-license AcceptLicense - Accept license dialogs automatically. Reserved for future use. -y, --yes, --confirm Confirm all prompts - Chooses affirmative answer instead of prompting. Implies --accept-license -f, --force Force - force the behavior. Do not use force during normal operation - it subverts some of the smart behavior for commands. --noop, --whatif, --what-if NoOp / WhatIf - Don't actually do anything. -r, --limitoutput, --limit-output LimitOutput - Limit the output to essential information --timeout, --execution-timeout=VALUE CommandExecutionTimeout (in seconds) - The time to allow a command to finish before timing out. Overrides the default execution timeout in the configuration of 2700 seconds. -c, --cache, --cachelocation, --cache-location=VALUE CacheLocation - Location for download cache, defaults to %TEMP% or value in chocolatey.config file. --allowunofficial, --allow-unofficial, --allowunofficialbuild, --allow-unofficial-build AllowUnofficialBuild - When not using the official build you must set this flag for choco to continue. --failstderr, --failonstderr, --fail-on-stderr, --fail-on-standard-error, --fail-on-error-output FailOnStandardError - Fail on standard error output (stderr), typically received when running external commands during install providers. This overrides the feature failOnStandardError. --use-system-powershell UseSystemPowerShell - Execute PowerShell using an external process instead of the built-in PowerShell host. Should only be used when internal host is failing. Available in 0.9.10+. -s, --source=VALUE Source - The source we are pushing the package to. Use https://chocolatey.org/ to push to [community feed](https://chocolatey.org/packages). -k, --key, --apikey, --api-key=VALUE ApiKey - The api key for the source. If not specified (and not local file source), does a lookup. If not specified and one is not found for an https source, push will fail. -t=VALUE Timeout (in seconds) - The time to allow a package push to occur before timing out. Defaults to execution timeout 2700.
