Dependency List (ULTIMATE)

Introduced in GitLab Ultimate 12.0.

The Dependency list allows you to see your project's dependencies, and key details about them, including their known vulnerabilities. To see it, navigate to Security & Compliance > Dependency List in your project's sidebar.


  1. The Dependency Scanning CI job must be configured for your project.
  2. Your project uses at least one of the languages and package managers supported by Gemnasium.

Viewing dependencies

Dependency List

Dependencies are displayed with the following information:

Field Description
Status Displays whether or not the dependency has any known vulnerabilities
Component The dependency's name
Version The exact locked version of the dependency your project uses
Packager The packager used to install the depedency
Location A link to the packager-specific lockfile in your project that declared the dependency
License Links to dependency's software licenses

Dependencies shown are initially sorted by their names. They can also be sorted by the packager they were installed by, or by the severity of their known vulnerabilities.

There is a second list under the Vulnerable components tab displaying only those dependencies with known vulnerabilities. If there are none, this tab is disabled.


If a dependency has known vulnerabilities, they can be viewed by clicking on the Status cell of that dependency. The severity and description of each vulnerability will then be displayed below it.


Introduced in GitLab Ultimate 12.3.

If the License Compliance CI job is configured, the discovered licenses will be displayed on this page.
