Chapter 24. Nexus IQ CLI


The topics discussed in this chapter require IQ Server with the Nexus Lifecycle or Nexus Auditor license.

While tools offering full integration for evaluations are provided (e.g. Nexus, Eclipse, and Hudson/Jenkins), any application can be evaluated against your policies simply by using the Nexus IQ CLI.

Before you get started, there are a few things you should make sure you have, including:

  • A general familiarity with the CLI (you don’t need to be an expert, but basic knowledge helps).
  • Installed and set up the IQ Server
  • Set up an organization and application
  • Created or imported a policy for your application, or the organization that contains your application.

With regard to integrating the Nexus IQ CLI with CI servers, you should also have a familiarity with the way your particular CI utilizes build steps to launch a simple script.
