Sonatype’s Advanced Legal Pack takes the headache out of legal compliance. Built on Sonatype Lifecycle’s powerful policy engine and powered by Sonatype Intelligence, the Advanced Legal Pack instantly streamlines OSS license compliance by giving legal teams and developers a way to understand license obligations and automate the collection, compilation, reporting, and remediation of OSS legal obligations, drastically improving team productivity and eliminating manual work.

Course Goals

This course outlines how The Advanced Legal Pack (ALP),  a licensed add-on to Sonatype Lifecycle, is helping  Legal and Development teams realize a faster and more accurate way to manage their OSS license obligations and speed up legal compliance.


By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the benefits of the Advanced Legal Pack.
  • Describe how ALP can save you time (and your sanity).
  • Better understand how ALP can shorten your “to-do” list.
  • Make better (or the best) compliance decisions based on Sonatype’s extended legal data.
PrerequisitesThere is no required coursework prior to beginning ALP. At a minimum, the learner should have a familiarity with OSS legal compliance and some basic understanding of a software license. Background information as provided in Intro to Sonatype LifecycleOrganizational Policies in Sonatype Lifecycle, and Open Source Software Licenses: What You Need to Know will likely aid in better understanding the benefits of the Advanced Legal Pack add-on.  
Target AudienceThe target audience for this course is the person (or persons) in your organization charged with OSS license obligations.

Lots of claims, but doesn't show how the product fulfills those claims

Felt rushed. As someone with little knowledge of what's required from a legal standpoint, I really need someone to walk me through the ALP workflow. This course doesn't show me how ALP helps a corporate lawyer. It makes a lot of claims, but doesn't walk me through the workflow so I can see the benefits myself.

ALP knows the obligations of over 1500 licenses and will automatically collect and report most of what is needed in an attribution report. Also allows attribution reposrts to be generated on application categories
