Description

The Register-PackageSource cmdlet adds a package source for a specified package provider. Package sources are always managed by a package provider. If the package provider cannot add or replace a package source, the provider generates an error message.

Examples

Example 1: Register a package source for the NuGet provider

PS C:\> Register-PackageSource -Name "MyRep" -Location "http://contoso/psmodule/Features/api/v3" -ProviderName "PsModule"

This command registers a package source, a web-based location for the PSModule provider. If you do not add the Trusted parameter, by default, the package is not trusted, and users are prompted to confirm that they trust the source before installing packages from the source.
