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-upgrade-all-at-startup -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-upgrade-all-at-startup -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

Create a Scheduled Task to keep all Chocolatey Packages up-to-date

FEBRUARY 23, 2016 / DANIEL S

Rebuilding your PC is always a drag, even with useful utilities like Ninite.

I recently created a PowerShell DSC script that I can use whenever I need to rebuild my PC. As part of that, I used the cChoco provider to automatically install applications using Chocolatey. I’ll be writing a blog post with more details shortly.

That’s a great way to get the applications installed, but not for keeping them up-to-date. Chocolatey allows you to run ‘choco upgrade all’ manually to do this:

Screenshot of choco upgrade all

Rather than manually create the scheduled task to automate this, I created this short PowerShell script:

$chocoCmd = Get-Command -Name 'choco' -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -WarningAction SilentlyContinue | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Source
if ($chocoCmd -eq $null) { break }
$taskAction = New-ScheduledTaskAction –Execute $chocoCmd -Argument 'upgrade all -y'
$taskTrigger = New-ScheduledTaskTrigger -AtStartup
$taskUserPrincipal = New-ScheduledTaskPrincipal -UserId 'SYSTEM'
$taskSettings = New-ScheduledTaskSettingsSet -Compatibility Win8
$task = New-ScheduledTask -Action $taskAction -Principal $taskUserPrincipal -Trigger $taskTrigger -Settings $taskSettings
Register-ScheduledTask -TaskName 'Run a Choco Upgrade All at Startup' -InputObject $task -Force

The script will:

  • Locate the choco.exe binary (It’ll quit if it can’t find it in the path)
  • Set up a scheduled task that runs said binary at system startup

Note that this script will only work on Windows 8 and newer machines, because it relies on the *-ScheduledTask cmdlets.


tools\chocolateyinstall.ps1
$chocoCmd = Get-Command -Name 'choco' -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -WarningAction SilentlyContinue | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Source
if ($chocoCmd -eq $null) { break }

# Settings for the scheduled task
$taskAction = New-ScheduledTaskAction –Execute $chocoCmd -Argument 'upgrade all -y'
$taskTrigger = New-ScheduledTaskTrigger -AtStartup
$taskUserPrincipal = New-ScheduledTaskPrincipal -UserId 'SYSTEM'
$taskSettings = New-ScheduledTaskSettingsSet -Compatibility Win8

# Set up the task, and register it
$task = New-ScheduledTask -Action $taskAction -Principal $taskUserPrincipal -Trigger $taskTrigger -Settings $taskSettings
Register-ScheduledTask -TaskName 'Run a Choco Upgrade All at Startup' -InputObject $task -Force

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.
