sources command (NuGet CLI)

Applies to: package consumption, publishing • Supported versions: all

Manages the list of sources located in the user scope configuration file or a specified configuration file. The user scope configuration file is located at %appdata%\NuGet\NuGet.Config (Windows) and ~/.nuget/NuGet/NuGet.Config (Mac/Linux).

Note that the source URL for nuget.org is https://api.nuget.org/v3/index.json.

Usage

nuget sources <operation> -Name <name> -Source <source>

where <operation> is one of List, Add, Remove, Enable, Disable, or Update, <name> is the name of the source, and <source> is the source's URL. You can operate on only one source at a time.

Options

Option Description
ConfigFile The NuGet configuration file to apply. If not specified, %AppData%\NuGet\NuGet.Config (Windows) or ~/.nuget/NuGet/NuGet.Config (Mac/Linux) is used.
ForceEnglishOutput (3.5+) Forces nuget.exe to run using an invariant, English-based culture.
Format Applies to the list action and can be Detailed (the default) or Short.
Help Displays help information for the command.
NonInteractive Suppresses prompts for user input or confirmations.
Password Specifies the password for authenticating with the source.
StorePasswordInClearText Indicates to store the password in unencrypted text instead of the default behavior of storing an encrypted form.
UserName Specifies the user name for authenticating with the source.
Verbosity Specifies the amount of detail displayed in the output: normal, quiet, detailed.

[!Note] Make sure to add the sources' password under the same user context as the nuget.exe is later used to access the package source. The password will be stored encrypted in the config file and can only be decrypted in the same user context as it was encrypted. So for example when you use a build server to restore NuGet packages the password must be encrypted with the same Windows user under which the build server task will run.
