License source

Updated:2023-12-08

An external artifact may have three different sources of licenses. Each license that is created by MAIA/SBOM Central is set to be a license proposition to be approved, disapproved or set aside.

  • Sbom - the Software Bill of Materials uploaded to the WebApp contains license information.
  • Link - repository or homepage links may provide the WebApp with license information.
  • Manual - a license is manually created in the WebApp user interface.

All types may be present (and valid) in parallel.

An "Ignore" select box will prevent MAIA/SBOM Central from using the license proposition.
