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 choco push.

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 (choco -?).

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.

Usage

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.

Examples

choco push --source https://chocolatey.org/
choco push --source "'https://chocolatey.org/'" -t 500
choco push --source "'https://chocolatey.org/'" -k="'123-123123-123'"

Troubleshooting

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).
