SYNOPSIS

Returns a list of Package Management package providers available for installation.

SYNTAX

Find-PackageProvider [[-Name] <String[]>] [-AllVersions] [-Source <String[]>] [-IncludeDependencies]
 [-Credential <PSCredential>] [-Proxy <Uri>] [-ProxyCredential <PSCredential>] [-RequiredVersion <String>]
 [-MinimumVersion <String>] [-MaximumVersion <String>] [-Force] [-ForceBootstrap] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Find-PackageProvider cmdlet finds matching PackageManagement providers that are available in package sources registered with PowerShellGet. These are package providers available for installation with the Install-PackageProvider cmdlet. By default, this includes modules available in the Windows PowerShell Gallery with the PackageManagement and Provider tags.

Find-PackageProvider also finds matching Package Management providers that are available in the Package Management Azure Blob store. Use the bootstrapper provider to find and install them.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Find all available package providers

PS C:\> Find-PackageProvider

This command gets a list of all package providers that are available on the repositories supported by Package Management. By default, those package providers are available on the PowerShell Gallery and by using the Package Management bootstrapping application.

Example 2: Find all versions of a provider

PS C:\> Find-PackageProvider -Name "Nuget" -AllVersions

This command finds all versions of the package provider named Nuget.

Example 3: Find a provider from a specified source

PS C:\> Find-PackageProvider -Name "Gistprovider" -Source "PSGallery"

This command finds a package provider available by using a specified package source.
