There are a number of ways to get started importing projects in FOSSA. For a complete overview please checkout our guides on:
Release Groups are a collection of imported FOSSA projects. They help manage complex software products allowing you to create open source workflows across collections of repositories as well as maintain an open source audit log across multiple software releases.
Activating Release Groups on Your Account
Release Groups is an enterprise-only feature. Please contact [email protected] to activate release groups for your account.
In order to create a Release Group:
- Go to your projects page
- Click Create Release Group
- Add the Title and Version of your software release
- Select the Projects and the Versions to be included
Note: We recommend selecting a specific version of each project to include in your Release Group
When releasing new versions of your software, it is best to create new versions of your Release Group. This will maintain the exact software composition of each software release.
To create a new version:
- Go to your release group from the projects page
- Select Releases
- Click Create Version
- Update the Software Projects, Versions
- Click Save
By default your default account policy will apply to the release group. You can update the policy under your Release Groups' settings. When a new Release Group is created or edited, the Release Group will be re-scanned with the relevant policy. We will identify all issues within the Release Group based on the given policy.
Project corrections (any updates to licensing information, etc.) will persist when a project is added to a new Release Group, decreasing the number of false positives.
Yes, projects can be used in multiple release groups. Note: you may need to resolve an issue multiple times, once for each release group depending on your policy.
