About projects and bill of materials
Each project in Tidelift represents a repository or application at your organization that contains open source.
Obtaining a bill of materials
Viewing bill of materials
The full bill of materials lists all of the releases contained in a project. You can access the latest bill of materials for a project from Projects > Select a version from project history > Bill of materials. For each package in the bill of materials, you can see:
- The specific release
- The license
- The dependency chain of how it was brought in
- Whether it's used at runtime or development
- If the package is approved for use or not in the project's open source catalog
Bill of materials can be exported as a CSV.
Learning about security vulnerabilities or licensing issues in a bill of materials
The bill of materials indicates if a package release is approved or denied for use in the project's open source catalog. If a package release is denied for use, information is generally included about why and developers are provided with actionable next steps (such as upgrading to an approved release).
To learn about any potential issues for new package releases, you should request or import these packages into the catalog. You'll then be made aware of only the relevant standards violations, reducing noise and false positives. Read more about catalog standards work here.
