You can remove any of these packages from your repository without using them by logging into Nexus, browsing to the ChocolateyTest and ChocolateyInternal repositories, and deleting the package from each.

Custom Packages

You can add custom packages using the Specify any other packages textbox.

Please provide these as a comma-separated list, e.g.

nexus-repository, notepadplusplus, sublimetext3

⚠️ NOTE

We recommend you review and test all packages before internalizing and deploying them from the Chocolatey Community Repository.

Adding Packages Post-Deployment

You can download and internalize packages after the deployment of your environment.

To do so, log into Jenkins at https://<FQDN>/jenkins, and click the Schedule a Build... icon on the right of the Internalize packages from the Community Repository job. This will take you to a screen where you can add Package IDs as a semicolon-separated list to the P_PKG_LIST parameter, e.g.

nexus-repository; notepadplusplus; sublimetext3

Start the internalize job by clicking Build.

The specified packages will then be downloaded and pushed to your ChocolateyTest repository, ready for testing, and then be promoted to the ChocolateyInternal repository either by you or by the Update production repository job.

There are further details on these default jobs here.
