R (CRAN) Application Analysis


The CRAN coordinate based matching feature provides the ability to scan and evaluate R language dependencies found in a cran-installed.packages file.

What is supported

Files named cran-installed.packages (exported via installed.packages() command in CRAN console)  will be analyzed

What do we parse from the file?

The segments corresponding to package name and version of the dependency are evaluated. For example:

		     Package  	   Version
crosstalk	"crosstalk"    "1.0.0"

Integrations with CRAN scanning support

  • CLI from version 89
  • Jenkins from version 3.9.20200623-110149.2e546a0
  • Bamboo from version 1.16.0

Steps to analyze using the CLI

Invoke a CLI scan of a directory or subdirectories containing a cran-installed.packages file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found here: Nexus IQ CLI.
