Description

This module allows PowerShell repositories to be registered as package sources and PowerShell modules to be installed using the Puppet Package type.

The module supports Windows PowerShell (PowerShell 5) and PowerShell Core (PowerShell 6)

Setup

Windows PowerShell

For Windows PowerShell the PowerShellGet PowerShell module must be installed as well as the NuGet package provider. PowerShellGet is included with WMF5 or can be installed for earlier versions here http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=746217&clcid=0x409

PowerShell Core

PowerShellGet is included in PowerShell Core so no additional setup is necessary.

Usage

Install PowerShellGet PackageProviders

You can install PackageProviders for PowerShelLGet using the pspackageprovider type.

pspackageprovider {'ExampleProvider':
  ensure   => 'present',
  provider => 'windowspowershell',
}

In order to use this module to to get packages from a PSRepository like the PSGallery, you will have to ensure the Nuget provider is installed:

pspackageprovider {'Nuget':
  ensure   => 'present',
  provider => 'windowspowershell',
}

You can optionally specify the version of a PackageProvider using the version parameter.

pspackageprovider {'Nuget':
  ensure   => 'present',
  version  => '2.8.5.208',
  provider => 'windowspowershell',
}

Register an internal PowerShell repository

psrepository { 'my-internal-repo':
  ensure              => present,
  source_location     => 'http://myrepo.corp.com/api/nuget/powershell',
  installation_policy => 'trusted',
  provider            => 'windowspowershell',
}

Manifests can then refer to that repository using the package resource.

package { 'nameOfInternallyDevelopedModule':
  ensure   => '1.0.5',
  source   => 'my-internal-repo',
  provider => 'windowspowershell',
}

*Windows users should remember that package names in Puppet are case sensitive.

Use the PowerShell Gallery

You can install modules from the PowerShell Gallery by default once the setup instructions have been followed. You do not need to specify the PSGallery with the psrepository type.

package { 'Pester':
  ensure   => '4.0.3',
  source   => 'PSGallery',
  provider => 'powershellcore',
}

Side by side installation

On Windows, PowerShell Core is installed along side Windows PowerShell and maintains its modules separately. To install the same module for both versions then use a unique resource title and specify the name property.

package { 'PSExcel-wps':
  ensure   => latest,
  name     => 'PSExcel',
  provider => 'windowspowershell',
  source   => 'PSGallery',
}

package { 'PSExcel-psc':
  ensure   => latest,
  name     => 'PSExcel',
  provider => 'powershellcore',
  source   => 'PSGallery',
}

The provider

The provider to use will either be windowspowershell or powershellcore. Nodes using powershell.exe will use windowspowershell, and nodes that have PowerShell core (pwsh.exe) will use the powershellcore provider with both the psrepository and package types.

Full Working example

This complete example shows how to bootstrap the system with the Nuget package provider, ensure the PowerShell Gallery repository is configured and trusted, and install two modules (one using the WindowsPowerShell provider and one using the PowerShellCore provider).

pspackageprovider {'Nuget':
  ensure => 'present'
}

psrepository { 'PSGallery':
  ensure              => present,
  source_location     => 'https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2/',
  installation_policy => 'trusted',
}

package { 'xPSDesiredStateConfiguration':
  ensure   => latest,
  provider => 'windowspowershell',
  source   => 'PSGallery',
  install_options => [ '-AllowClobber' ]
}

package { 'Pester':
  ensure   => latest,
  provider => 'powershellcore',
  source   => 'PSGallery',
}

Limitations

Note that PowerShell modules can be installed side by side so installing a newer version of a module will not remove any previous versions.

  • As detailed in https://github.com/OneGet/oneget/issues/308, installing PackageProviders from a offline location instead of online is currently not working. A workaround is to use the Puppet file resource to ensure the prescence of the file before attempting to use the NuGet PackageProvider.

The following is an incompelete example that copies the NuGet provider dll to the directory that PowerShellGet expects. You would have to modify this declaration to complete the permissions for the target and the location of the source file.

file{"C:\Program Files\PackageManagement\ProviderAssemblies\nuget\2.8.5.208\Microsoft.PackageManagement.NuGetProvider.dll":
  ensure => 'file',
  source => "$source\nuget\2.8.5.208\Microsoft.PackageManagement.NuGetProvider.dll"
}

Reference

Types

package

puppet-powershellmodule implements a package type with a resource provider, which is built into Puppet.

The implementation supports the install_options attribute which can be used to pass additional options to the PowerShell Install-Modules command, e.g.:

package { 'xPSDesiredStateConfiguration':
  ensure   => latest,
  provider => 'windowspowershell',
  source   => 'PSGallery',
  install_options => [ '-AllowClobber',
                       { '-proxy' => 'http://proxy.local.domain' }  ]
}
