Open source license policy management

Identify if you are using packages with certain types of licenses

Overview of license policies

License policies provide an automated way to identify whether your developers are using packages with certain types of licenses, and provide guidance to them when Snyk identifies a license issue.

Modifying licenses for your team

If you are on the Team plan, you can edit the default license types to apply a different severity any time those licenses are used by open-source packages in any of the projects in your organization.

Skip to the next page if you're on an Enterprise plan.

Creating custom license policies

If you are on the Enterprise plan, you can edit the Snyk default license policy or create custom license policies. At the Enterprise level, license policies can be applied to specific organizations or to projects that have certain attributes.
