Not everyone will have access to the IQ Server or any of the integrated enforcement points, and in turn, any of the associated reports. However, certain individuals or teams would likely still benefit from the information the Application Composition Report provides. Even if that’s not your particular situation, you may reach a point where you would like to produce an archive of a Application Composition Report for historical and audit purposes. Given this need, a PDF can be generated for every report you produce.
Creating the PDF
With the Application Composition Report open, find the Options drop-down in the top right. The first entry in this drop down is title Generate PDF. Simply click that entry and your browser will prompt you to download a PDF version of the report.
The report filename uses the following pattern:
Reviewing the PDF
The information provided by the PDF is organized into a series of tables.
The Policy Violations table lists all policy violations for all components. This matches the data displayed in the Policy Violations tab of the Component Details Page.
The Vulnerabilities table lists all security vulnerabilities found for all components.
The Licenses table lists all licenses found for all components. In this list, the declared license(s) will be shown in bold and any observed licenses are shown in non-bold text up until IQ Server version 129.
NEW IN RELEASE 130
The Licenses table lists the Effective, Declared, and Observed licenses separately. The Effective license will be post-fixed with the text "(Overidden)" if it is due to an override.
Refer to Component License Information on how to interpret the license information in detail.
The Component BOM (Bill-Of-Materials) table lists all components.
