Deep code scanning Premium

Full code scans run across all your deep dependencies, picking up raw license headers or files inline.

  • Detects embedded GPL, even when not reported by developers
  • Additional parsing for metadata, notice files and webpages
    referenced in code
  • Differentiates between declared, nested & included licenses
    (from i.e. copy-pasted modules/files)
  • Fully configurable detail & depth
  • Intelligently handles dual/multi-licensed code
Why do I need full license scanning?
