License type

Updated:2023-12-08

The WebApp has features to support manual and automated license management to make the work more efficient.

Software licenses

Software components often have a package license file included. The naming of a license may differ between components, i.e., the Apache-2.0 license may have names like Apache2, Apache2.0, Apache License 2, etc.

The WebApp supports categorization of licenses so that the same license may have different names but a common license type.

License type

A License type is a category for a software license shared by multiple software components, i.e. MIT license, Apache-2.0 license, etc.

  • You can create lists of License types in the WebApp.
  • Each license type may contain a Template text i.e. a standard text for the license inserted/edited by you. The template text is used for evaluation and approval.
