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 choco-package-list-backup -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 choco-package-list-backup -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

Description

Screenshot of (unofficial) Choco Package List Backup to Local and Cloud (Script)

#choco-package-list-backup.ps1 solves your Chocolatey migration and package re-installation problems!

choco-package-list-backup.ps1 is a script I wrote that will backup the list of your currently installed Chocolatey packages and save them to a PACKAGES.CONFIG file. You can then use that PACKAGES.CONFIG file to re-install all your packages on another computer or even the same computer later if it crashes. "How can I re-install on the same computer if it crashed and I lost the PACKAGES.CONFIG file?" Thanks for asking! choco-package-list-backup.ps1 backs up your package list locally and to multiple cloud services!

####Features:

choco-package-list-backup.ps1 supports saving PACKAGES.CONFIG to all of the following:

  • your local Documents folder
  • your Active Directory assigned HOMESHARE
  • Box (new 2018-02-24)
  • Dropbox
  • Google Drive
  • Microsoft OneDrive
  • NETGEAR ReadyCLOUD
  • Nextcloud
  • Resilio Sync
  • Seafile (new 2018-02-24)
  • TonidoSync
  • A custom location of your choice
  • more coming - Let me know what you want/need!

choco-package-list-backup.ps1 runs on install to make sure you have backup(s) right now! (new 2018-04-23)

choco-package-list-backup.ps1 supports backing up persistentpackages.config if you are using choco-persistent-packages (new 2018-04-24)

choco-package-list-backup.ps1 saves in computer (name) specific folders so you can backup your Chocolatey package list from multiple computers to the same cloud destination(s). No confusion over what computer gets what packages!

choco-package-list-backup.ps1 is configurable. You can:

  • configure which locations you want or don't want to save to (default=all the locations found except the custom location)
  • configure to save package version information or not (default=False)
  • configure to append a date to the saved packages.config (default=False) (new 2018-04-24)
  • configure what subfolder to save to (default=ChocolateyPackageListBackup)
  • easily add a custom location by editing $CustomPath and $UseCustomPath in the script

choco-package-list-backup.ps1 is saved to the Chocolatey's bin folder (\ProgramData\chocolatey\bin), so it's in your path.

choco-package-list-backup.ps1 supports copying InstChoco with the PACKAGES.CONFIG path for the fastest way ever to reinstall Chocolatey and your Chocolatey packages! (Or migrate!)

choco-package-list-backup.ps1 instructions:

  • Edit \ProgramData\chocolatey\bin\choco-package-list-backup.ps1 to customize your backup(s). It's easy, there are comments.
  • From PowerShell, type CHOCO-PACKAGE-LIST-BACKUP.PS1 to backup your Chocolatey packages list.
  • From Command Prompt, type POWERSHELL CHOCO-PACKAGE-LIST-BACKUP.PS1 to backup your Chocolatey packages list.
  • From Windows, click Choco Package List Backup in the Start menu (new 2018-02-24)

###Use choco-package-list-backup.ps1 along with ForcePS for easy execution and InstChoco for a complete backup and recovery solution of your Chocolatey packages.
