Including Requests in the Third-Party Notices Report for Requests (6x)

Including Requests in the Third-Party Notices Report for Requests (6x)

The article describes how to associate a third-party notice with the component-version-license combination in a request to ensure that this notice is listed in the Third-Party Notices Report for Requests (which can be filtered by either project or product catalog). This process involves the three phases:
 

 

 

Phase 1: Associating Third-Party Notice Content with a Request

To associate third-party notice content with the request, do the following:

  1. From the Requests tab in Code Insight, select to edit an existing request or to create a request.

    The Edit Third-Party Notice window opens.

  4. To continue, refer to appropriate section below for the method you want to use to provide the third-party notice content for the component-version-license combination. If third-party notice information has already been defined in the request, you can use one of these same methods to update the information, or simply click Cancel to not make any changes.

 

 

Use the Standard Third-Party Notice

Use the following procedure to automatically populate the notice fields in the Edit Third-Party Notice window with the standard notice content for the matching component-version-license combination in Data Library (PDL). Note that once this standard notice information populates the fields, it must be used as is; it cannot be edited. (If you want to edit this information, use the procedure in the next section, “Download and Customize the Standard Notice Content”.

If no match for the combination is found in the PDL; or, if the combination exists in the PDL but has no third-party notice is associated with it, no notice fields are populated in the Edit Third-Party Notice window. When this is the case, you can create the notice content from scratch, as described in the later section, “Create Notice Content from Scratch”.

To use the standard third-party notice content, do the following:

  1. On the Edit Third-Party Notice window, click the Use Standard Notice option in the Notice Data field.

    Note: When you click this option, any information currently populating the notice fields is overwritten with the standard notice data.

  2. Select Yes in the Include in Third-Party Notice field. This step is mandatory for the inclusion of this notice in the Third-Party Notices Report for a Request. If you select Unknown or No, the notice is not included in the report.

  3. Click Save to save the notice content.

 

 

Download and Customize the Standard Notice Content

Use the following procedure to download the standard third-party notice content for the component-version-license combination from the PDL so that you can customize it.

If no match for the combination is found in the PDL; or, if the combination exists in the PDL but has no third-party notice is associated with it, no notice fields are populated in the Edit Third-Party Notice window. When this is the case, you can proceed to create the notice content from scratch, as described in the next section, “Create Notice Content from Scratch”.

To download the standard third-party notice content and customize it, do the following:

  1. On the Edit Third-Party Notice window, click the Define My Own option in the Notice Data field.
