The Sonatype IQ Server powers multiple Sonatype solutions, including Lifecycle, Auditor, Firewall, and Lifecycle Foundation. Each solution's corresponding license controls access to IQ Server tools and features. You may have access to some or all of IQ Server tools and features depending on the solution you purchased.
In general, when we are talking about a solution, we are referring to a particular license (e.g., Sonatype Lifecycle vs. Sonatype Repository Firewall) and the features it unlocks. In contrast, when we describe a product, we specifically mean the thing you will install (e.g., Sonatype IQ Server). The table below breaks down the various solutions (licenses) and their corresponding products.
