About Qodana License Audit

official project

Qodana License Audit can help software projects avoid problems with incompatible third-party licenses. The tool can detect more than 1600 licenses and works with several package managers. Like any other Qodana linter, License Audit is a CI-first tool: users can set up a Continuous License Compliance pipeline and tune it up to their needs.

Read License Audit Output Formats to find information about all inspections and possible ways to resolve reported problems.
