Synopsis

  • This module helps to add, remove and update Windows PowerShell repository on Windows-based systems.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

force

boolean

If True, any differences from the desired state will result in the repository being unregistered, and then re-registered.

force has no effect when state=absent. See notes for additional context.

Choices:

  • false ← (default)

  • true

installation_policy

string

Sets the InstallationPolicy of a repository.

Will default to trusted when creating a new repository or used with force=True.

Choices:

  • "trusted"

  • "untrusted"

name

string / required

Name of the repository to work with.

password

string

added in community.windows 1.10.0

Password to authenticate against private repository.

proxy

string

added in community.windows 1.1.0

Proxy to use for repository.

publish_location

string

Specifies the URI for publishing modules to this repository.

script_publish_location

string

Specifies the URI for publishing scripts to this repository.

script_source_location

string

Specifies the URI for discovering and installing scripts from this repository.

source_location

aliases: source

string

Specifies the URI for discovering and installing modules from this repository.

A URI can be a NuGet server feed (most common situation), HTTP, HTTPS, FTP or file location.

Required when registering a new repository or using force=True.

state

string

If present a new repository is added or updated.

If absent a repository is removed.

Choices:

  • "absent"

  • "present" ← (default)

username

string

added in community.windows 1.10.0

Username to authenticate against private repository.

Notes

Note

  • See the examples on how to update the NuGet package provider.

  • You can not use win_psrepository to re-register (add) removed PSGallery, use the command Register-PSRepository -Default instead.

  • When registering or setting source_location, PowerShellGet will transform the location according to internal rules, such as following HTTP/S redirects.

  • This can result in a CHANGED status on each run as the values will never match and will be “reset” each time.

  • To work around that, find the true destination value with community.windows.win_psrepository_info or Get-PSRepository and update the playbook to match.

  • When updating an existing repository, all options except name are optional. Only supplied options will be updated. Use force=True to exactly match.

  • script_location, publish_location, and script_publish_location are optional but once set can only be cleared with force=True.

  • Using force=True will unregister and re-register the repository if there are any changes, so that it exactly matches the options specified.
