Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started


The Advanced Development Pack (ADP) is putting control back in development teams’ hands, helping them engage in proactive dependency management practices without losing the momentum of agile development. Watch the brief video below to learn more about ADP before continuing on to the deeper dive of the course content.


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

  • Identify recommendations for incompatible code using Breaking Changes 
  • Decide upon a recommended version for direct dependency which will also resolve the transitive dependencies, using the Transitive Solver
  • Describe how Release Integrity automatically detects and blocks suspicious and potentially malicious OSS components before they enter the development environment.  
  • Use the Health & Hygiene rating to perform a quality comparison of OSS components, eliminating the need to do your own research.


There are no required prerequisites. Though, we recommend that you have experience with Nexus IQ or have taken the IQ-100 Foundations Course.

Setting Expectations

For the purpose of this course, we will discuss IQ Server’s set of reference policies, which are those ‘out-of-box’ policies.  While these out-of-box policies are very good and many of our customers use as-is, other organizations create their own policies.  Your organization may have policies other than those in this course. Consult your legal team.

Great new features!

I think these features could really help the developers remediate faster, especially with the capabilities of the Transitive Solver and breaking changes.
