NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade vault -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade vault -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Vault is a tool for securely accessing secrets. A secret is anything that you want to tightly control access to, such as API keys, passwords, certificates, and more. Vault provides a unified interface to any secret, while providing tight access control and recording a detailed audit log.

A modern system requires access to a multitude of secrets: database credentials, API keys for external services, credentials for service-oriented architecture communication, etc. Understanding who is accessing what secrets is already very difficult and platform-specific. Adding on key rolling, secure storage, and detailed audit logs is almost impossible without a custom solution. This is where Vault steps in.

The key features of Vault are:

* Secure Secret Storage: Arbitrary key/value secrets can be stored in Vault. Vault encrypts these secrets prior to writing them to persistent storage, so gaining access to the raw storage isn't enough to access your secrets. Vault can write to disk, Consul, and more.
* Dynamic Secrets: Vault can generate secrets on-demand for some systems, such as AWS or SQL databases. For example, when an application needs to access an S3 bucket, it asks Vault for credentials, and Vault will generate an AWS keypair with valid permissions on demand. After creating these dynamic secrets, Vault will also automatically revoke them after the lease is up.
* Data Encryption: Vault can encrypt and decrypt data without storing it. This allows security teams to define encryption parameters and developers to store encrypted data in a location such as SQL without having to design their own encryption methods.
* Leasing and Renewal: All secrets in Vault have a lease associated with it. At the end of the lease, Vault will automatically revoke that secret. Clients are able to renew leases via built-in renew APIs.
* Revocation: Vault has built-in support for secret revocation. Vault can revoke not only single secrets, but a tree of secrets, for example all secrets read by a specific user, or all secrets of a particular type. Revocation assists in key rolling as well as locking down systems in the case of an intrusion.

For more information, see the introduction section of the Vault website.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

* Given: (a) performance replication is enabled; (b) performance standbys are
in use on the performance replication secondary cluster; and (c) mount
filters are in use, if a mount that was previously available to a secondary
is updated to be filtered out, although the data would be removed from the
secondary cluster, the in-memory cache of the data would not be purged on
the performance standby nodes. As a result, the previously-available data
could still be read from memory if it was ever read from disk, and if this
included mount configuration data this could result in token or lease
issuance. The issue is fixed in this release; in prior releases either an
active node changeover (such as a step-down) or a restart of the standby
nodes is sufficient to cause the performance standby nodes to clear their
cache. A CVE is in the process of being issued; the number is
* Roles in the JWT Auth backend using the OIDC login flow (i.e. role_type of
“oidc”) were not enforcing bound_cidrs restrictions, if any were configured
for the role. This issue did not affect roles of type “jwt”.


* auth/jwt: Disallow logins of role_type "oidc" via the /login path [JWT-38]
* core/acl: New ordering defines which policy wins when there are multiple
inexact matches and at least one path contains +. +* is now illegal in
policy paths. The previous behavior simply selected any matching
segment-wildcard path that matched. [GH-6532]
* replication: Due to technical limitations, mounting and unmounting was not
previously possible from a performance secondary. These have been resolved,
and these operations may now be run from a performance secondary.


* agent: Allow AppRole auto-auth without a secret-id [GH-6324]
* auth/gcp: Cache clients to improve performance and reduce open file usage
* auth/jwt: Bounds claims validiation will now allow matching the received
claims against a list of expected values [JWT-41]

* replication: Mounting/unmounting/remounting/mount-tuning is now supported
from a performance secondary cluster
* ui: Suport for authentication via the RADIUS auth method [GH-6488]

* agent: Allow auto-auth to be used with caching without having to define any
sinks [GH-6468]
* agent: Disallow some nonsensical config file combinations [GH-6471]
* auth/ldap: Fix CN check not working if CN was not all in uppercase [GH-6518]

URL when running on Windows [JWT-37]
* auth/jwt: Fix OIDC login issue where configured TLS certs weren't being used [JWT-40]
* auth/jwt: Fix an issue where the oidc_scopes parameter was not being included in
the response to a role read request [JWT-35]

wasn't explicitly specified [GH-6455]
