Nuget

Renovate supports upgrading dependencies in .csproj files.

Version Support

Only SDK-style .csproj files are currently supported. By default, this includes:

  • .NET Core 1.0 and above
  • .NET Standard class libraries
  • Any .csproj in the SDK-style syntax

To convert your .NET Framework .csproj into an SDK-style project, one can follow the following guide.

How It Works

  1. Renovate will search each repository for any files with a .csproj extension.
  2. Existing dependencies will be extracted from <PackageReference> tags
  3. Renovate will look up the latest version on nuget.org (or on alternate feeds) to determine if any upgrades are available
  4. If the source package includes a GitHub URL as its source, and has either a "changelog" file or uses GitHub releases, then Release Notes for each version will be embedded in the generated PR.

Alternate feeds

Renovate by default performs all lookups on https://api.nuget.org/v3/index.json, but it also supports alternative nuget feeds. Alternative feeds can be specified in configuration file:

"nuget": {
  "registryUrls": [
    "https://api.nuget.org/v3/index.json",
    "http://example1.com/nuget/"
    "http://example2.com/nuget/v3/index.json"
  ]
}

If this example we defined 3 nuget feeds. Packages resolving will process feeds consequentially. It means that if package will be resolved in second feed renovate won't look in last one.

Authenticated feeds

Credentials for authenticated/private feeds can be provided via host rules in the configuration options (file or command line parameter).

"hostRules": [
  {
    "platform": "nuget",
    "endpoint": "http://example1.com/nuget",
    "username": "root",
    "password": "p4$$w0rd"
  }
]

Please note that at the moment only Basic HTTP authentication (via username and password) is supported.
