Reporting with Tidelift

Tidelift allows you to move away from relying on reports to manage your organization's open source. Instead, you are able to proactively curate and manage known-good catalogs of open source so that your team can avoid having to sift through reports of issues.

That said, we still provide key data to common questions your organization may ask about open source. The following table provides samples of the questions that we can help you answer. These questions can often be answered directly through the Tidelift web app, as downloadable reports (CSVs, PDFs), or integrate the raw data into your own reporting system through the Tidelift API. 

Some downloadable reports are pre-built and others can be customized with the help of your Tidelift account manager. Contact support@tidelift.com for help with your organization's unique reporting needs. We can also help you integrate Tidelift data into your existing reporting products.
