Many organizations run periodic checks on all OSS components being used to make sure that they are only using those with licenses approved by the company’s legal department. This inventory-taking can put teams of engineers out of commission for days or even weeks until they have a full report of components and their dependencies being used. Xray makes these quarterly rituals a thing of the past. All indexed artifacts and their dependencies are scanned for the open source licenses they use, and you can generate a full report at the touch of a button. View a chart showing the distribution of all licenses in your organization. Using License Filters you can even see which components use licenses banned by your legal department, or get alerts sent directly to your email as soon as those components enter your software repositories. The click of a button vs. weeks of work for a team of engineer. That’s an easy decision to make.
