Sonatype IQ Server Feature Status


The Sonatype Product Development Lifecycle (PDLC), including definitions of each stage, is fully defined in Sonatype Sunsetting Information

For more information about Sonatype Support services, please see Sonatype's Software Support Policy.

The Sonatype PDLC is designed to keep us continually improving our products and ensure our customers have access to our best features and functionality. This also helps us provide quality support services for our features and products. To this end, Sonatype will sunset and remove some Sonatype IQ Server features as they become obsolete.

Data on the Debian and Alpine ecosystems is provided through Sonatype Container and is more up-to-date than what is available through Lifecycle. Sonatype Container also protects runtime environments a capability that Lifecycle does not provide.

Customers should contact their account manager to discuss transitioning to Sonatype Container for scanning their build and runtime environments for Alpine and Debian, ensuring continuity in their SDLC processes.
