Introducing the XL Release Black Duck plugin


XebiaLabs Support -

Dear XebiaLabs community,

We are pleased to announce the release of the Black Duck plugin 7.6.0 for XL Release. Integration with Black Duck makes it easy for you to verify that the open source software you use in your applications and containers is secure as part of your templates and releases.

Using XL Release and Black Duck allows you to embed code risk analysis in your Continuous Delivery pipelines. You can automatically check code against various types of risk, such as license risks, security risks, and operational risks. Built-in code analysis also ensures that code is always automatically checked against compliance requirements as part of the release process. 

The Black Duck plugin allows you to:

  • Add Check Compliance tasks to templates and releases and configure them with a threshold for various risks and their severity
  • Add a Black Duck risk profile tile to release dashboards and configure it to show risk metrics for a given project in a graphical way

Note: The Black Duck plugin is available for XL Release 7.5.0 and later.


You can download the plugin at the XebiaLabs Software Distribution site.
