  1. Register-PSRepository needs a -Force parameter and/or GroupPolicy Administrative Template

    I have created an internal NuGet Gallery to act as a module repository for internal modules and am trying to automate the registration of it as a trusted internal repository for all users in my organisation that use Windows Powershell and/or perhaps are starting to use DSC.

    As all of the users in my organisation who use Powershell are in an AD group, I went looking for a Group Policy setting to register the internal repsitory. There isn't one, so I created a GPO and set it to run the following script, in the user context at login.

    Requires -version

  2. Make PowerShell Gallery module files and scripts searchable

    Now that you can view file contents in the Gallery website, it would be very useful if you would expand the search feature such that it searches the contents of scripts and files inside of modules. This would allow users to search for a specific command or a .NET class or method, which will help discover Gallery items that exist that solve a particular problem someone is trying to solve. It will also help authors discover when something they might want to create has already been created without having to guess module names or script names. The results should show…

  3. Simply copying code from PowerShell Gallery - Copy to Clipboard button

    Currently to copy code from the PowerShell all text has to be manually selected using the mouse and then copied. In order to simplify this a button to either copy or select all the code on the current page would improve the user experience.

  4. Allow for publishing Profile Paths with Spaces

    when using publish module if a user has a space in their profile it fails to publish the module:
    PS C:> Publish-Module -Tags Twitter -Name Posh-Tweet -NuGetApiKey xxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxx -Verbose
    VERBOSE: The specified assembly 'C:\Users\Carlos Perez\AppData\Local\PackageManagement\ProviderAssemblies\nuget-anycpu.exe' is installed at top level directory. However it is recommended that the assemblies should be installed under its ProviderName\Version folder.
    VERBOSE: Skipping previously processed provider 'NuGet'.
    VERBOSE: Repository details, Name = 'PSGallery', Location = 'https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2/'; IsTrusted = 'False'; IsRegistered = 'True'.
    VERBOSE: Repository details, Name = 'PSGallery', Location = 'https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2/'; IsTrusted = 'False'; IsRegistered = 'True'.
    VERBOSE: Publish Location:'https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2/package/'. …

  5. Allow Register-PSRepository to persist credentials

    NuGet feeds allow security around both listing/retrieving packages as well as pushing packages. NuGet.exe and other clients further allow you to persist credentials for listing/retrieving packages using the "nuget sources" command. (https://docs.nuget.org/consume/command-line-reference#sources-command)

    This persistence is important for two reasons:

    1) When you push a package to a secured NuGet feed, NuGet clients generally do a list/read operation first. That list/read operation doesn't contain any API key that you pass along in the push operation. In order for a push to succeed with an API key, you also need to have credentials set for the read operation. You can…
