FOSSology is a collaboration project of the Linux Foundation covering license compliance tasks: It is a Web server system for users and a toolkit. As a toolkit you can run license, copyright and export control scans from the command line. As a system, a database and Web user interface provides you with a compliance workflow.

The session presents and explains a number of new components in the area of scanning and license compliance automation: First, a couple of new scan techniques have been implemented for achieving more precision when scanning for licenses - reducing manual correction effort. Second, FOSSology was extended with a REST API, allowing other systems for interoperation with FOSSology using software, shells scripts, shell commands or any other form of execution that produces REST requests. Now, scanning and SPDX document generation can be entirely performance by REST requests.
