Basic questions for the Chocolatey Plugin for Automate

Post by md202 » Thu Sep 12, 2019 8:10 pm


We are new to this product and recently purchase the license for `Chocolately for Automate Unlimited Agents`. I've deployed the Plugin successfully in ConnectWise Automate Control Center using the provided DLL file and version

I've reviewed the video tutorials posted on the site: ... tey#videos

However, the current version of the Plugin does not seem to match the configuration features displayed in the tutorials.

Please provide clarification for the following:

1) For the configuration of the Global settings (Control Center >Tools > Chocolatey for Automate), is it required to configure the section "Poll"? What are the settings for "LT Server ID", "Local Sys Admin" and "Password"?

2) Is it possible to configure the Plugin and framework to perform only application updates, only when the are already installed on a Computer? The global application settings accept only "Install" and "Install + Update". Selecting only "Update" is not possible.

3) How do I access the settings to configure the scheduling for application updates? The video tutorial created in the year 2016 does present an option for scheduling. However, the current version does not seem to have them.

4) Does the Chocolatey framework need to be installed on every computer endpoint? If so, is the Plugin going to deploy the software framework automatically? How is the deployment managed from Automate?

4) Is there an up-to-date more detailed documentation or video tutorials for the current version of the Plugin and its configuration?

Please advise.
