Source Command (choco source)

Chocolatey will allow you to interact with sources.

NOTE: Mostly compatible with older chocolatey client (0.9.8.x and below) with options and switches. When enabling, disabling or removing a source, use -name in front of the option now. In most cases you can still pass options and switches with one dash (-). For more details, see how to pass arguments (choco -?).

Usage

choco source [list]|add|remove|disable|enable [<options/switches>]
choco sources [list]|add|remove|disable|enable [<options/switches>]

Examples

choco source
choco source list
choco source add -n=bob -s="https://somewhere/out/there/api/v2/"
choco source add -n=bob -s "'https://somewhere/out/there/api/v2/'" -cert=\Users\bob\bob.pfx
choco source add -n=bob -s "'https://somewhere/out/there/api/v2/'" -u=bob -p=12345
choco source disable -n=bob
choco source enable -n=bob
choco source remove -n=bob

When it comes to the source location, this can be a folder/file share or an http location. If it is a url, it will be a location you can go to in a browser and it returns OData with something that says Packages in the browser, similar to what you see when you go to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2/.

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).
