ApiKey Command (choco apikey)
This lists API keys that are set or sets an api key for a particular source so it doesn't need to be specified every time.
Anything that doesn't contain source and key will list API keys.
choco apikey [<options/switches>] choco setapikey [<options/switches>]
choco apikey choco apikey -s https://somewhere/out/there choco apikey list choco apikey list -s https://somewhere/out/there choco apikey add -s="https://somewhere/out/there/" -k="value" choco apikey add -s "https://push.chocolatey.org/" -k="123-123123-123" choco apikey add -s "http://internal_nexus" -k="user:password" choco apikey remove -s https://somewhere/out/there
For source location, this can be a folder/file share or an http location. When it comes to urls, they can be different from the packages url (where packages are searched and installed from). As an example, for Chocolatey's community package package repository, the package url is https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/, but the push url is https://push.chocolatey.org (and the deprecated https://chocolatey.org/ as a push url). Check the documentation for your choice of repository to learn what the push url is.
For the key, this can be an apikey that is provided by your source repository. With some sources, like Nexus, this can be a NuGet API key or it could be a user name and password specified as 'user:password' for the API key. Please see your repository's documentation (for Nexus, please see https://ch0.co/nexus2apikey).
See scripting in how to pass arguments (
choco -?) for how to write proper scripts and integrations.
Connecting to Chocolatey.org (Community Package Repository)
In order to save your API key for https://push.chocolatey.org/, log in (or register, confirm and then log in) to https://push.chocolatey.org/, go to https://push.chocolatey.org/account, copy the API Key, and then use it in the following command:
choco apikey add -k <your key here> -s https://push.chocolatey.org/
Exit codes that normally result from running this command.
- 0: operation was successful, no issues detected
- -1 or 1: an error has occurred
If you find other exit codes that we have not yet documented, please file a ticket so we can document it at https://github.com/chocolatey/choco/issues/new/choose.
Options and Switches
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).
