Download and Compatibility
You should have already received an email containing the necessary information to unlock all the Nexus IQ Server features you have purchased. If you have not received this, please contact your Sales executive directly, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Depending on your purchase, you may need to install additional tools such as the Bamboo or Jenkins plugin. No matter what was purchased, you will need to download and install Nexus IQ Server first.
If you would like to see a description of the latest features, as well as those for a specific release, view our Release Notes.
Starting with the 1.17 release, Sonatype CLM was renamed to Nexus IQ Server. You may still occasionally see Sonatype CLM in the product or documentation.
In celebration of our 50th release, we've changed the versioning scheme of IQ Server. For this release, and all future releases, we're dropping the "1." prefix to indicate the continuous stream of features the IQ Server team delivers, and also highlight feature increments throughout releases.
|Sonatype Application||Latest Version||Download|
|IQ Server & CLI||51||
Starting in 1.45, Nexus IQ Server uses a more effective and condensed format to store policy violation data. Depending on the database size of your installation and the hardware you use, upgrading your database to this new format can take notable time (up to hours in the worst case scenarios). You should review the upgrade procedure detailed in Upgrading the IQ Server to Version 1.45 .
This bundle already contains the CLI tool for convenience.

IQ Server to Integration Plugin Version Compatibility
Sonatype encourages using the most current IQ Server release and not trailing behind more than six months. If you are using an older version of Nexus IQ Server, or any of the associated integrations, and wish to upgrade to the latest version, please contact our Support Team.
Some versions of Nexus IQ Server (1.26 and above) are not fully compatible with old integrations. In cases where reverse proxy authentication is used, communication failures could occur between old integrations and the IQ Server. Integrations should be updated to the latest version when using reverse proxy authentication. For more information, please see our documentation on Upgrading the IQ Server.
