We are happy to announce the release of version 1.2.0 of the Chocolatey Ansible Collection!

Discussed below are the main changes included in this release but we also have a full set of release notes available.

Changes in win_chocolatey

Added state: upgrade Option

We have updated the documentation to clarify the behaviour of state: latest and state: present particularly when used with version:. We also added state: upgrade as an alias for the existing state: latest.

Note that using state: present in combination with version: will result in an error if a different version of the target package is already installed. If you want to upgrade packages, use state: latest or state: upgrade.

Example Usage

- name: upgrade choco
    state: upgrade
    name: chocolatey

Added choco_args: Option

We have added the ability to provide Chocolatey CLI arguments through the choco_args option. This allows you to provide additional parameters directly, including licensed arguments for Chocolatey For Business customers.

This option takes a list of parameters to pass to Chocolatey CLI, which will be added after any explicitly-set options in the Ansible task. This means that explicitly setting the version option, or any other options, will take precedence over anything provided in choco_args.

Example Usage

- name: install package with sensitive params
  no_log: true
    state: present
    name: package_name
    - --package-parameters-sensitive
    - '/ConnectionString:"{{ my_connection_string }}"'
