Policy Enforcement with Nexus IQ Server

As discussed in Concepts, repository management and managing components in your software development life cycle are closely related activities. The Nexus suite of tools provides a server application for administrating your component usage policies and other features that integrate with other tools of the suite. It has access to extensive security vulnerability and license information data from the Nexus IQ Server backend that can be used as input for your policies. For example you could establish a policy that is logged as violated, if any component in your software has a known security vulnerability or uses a license that is incompatible with your business model.

Nexus Repository Manager Pro can take advantage of Nexus IQ Server. It can be integrated to validate policies as part of your usage of the staging suite.

Detailed instructions on how to install and configure the Nexus IQ Server as well as the integration with Nexus Repository Manager Pro can be found in the documentation.
