About the dependency graph

You can use the dependency graph to identify all your project's dependencies. The dependency graph supports a range of popular package ecosystems.

Dependency graph availability

The dependency graph is available for every repository that defines dependencies in a supported package ecosystem using a supported file format.

您的站点管理员必须启用 Dependabot alerts for vulnerable dependencies for 您的 GitHub Enterprise Server 实例 before you can use this feature. 更多信息请参阅“为 GitHub Enterprise Server 上易受攻击的依赖项启用安全警报”。

About the dependency graph

The dependency graph is a summary of the manifest and lock files stored in a repository. For each repository, it shows dependencies, that is, the ecosystems and packages it depends on. GitHub Enterprise Server does not calculate information about dependents, the repositories and packages that depend on a repository.

When you push a commit to GitHub Enterprise Server that changes or adds a supported manifest or lock file to the default branch, the dependency graph is automatically updated. For information on the supported ecosystems and manifest files, see "Supported package ecosystems" below.

Dependencies included

The dependency graph includes all the dependencies of a repository that are detailed in the manifest and lock files, or their equivalent, for supported ecosystems. This includes:

  • Direct dependencies, that are explicitly defined in a manifest or lock file
  • Indirect dependencies of these direct dependencies, also known as transitive dependencies or sub-dependencies

The dependency graph identifies indirect dependencies from the lock files.

Using the dependency graph

You can use the dependency graph to:

Enabling the dependency graph

If the dependency graph is not available in your system, your site administrator can enable the dependency graph and Dependabot 警报. For more information, see "Enabling alerts for vulnerable dependencies on GitHub Enterprise Server."

When the dependency graph is first enabled, any manifest and lock files for supported ecosystems are parsed immediately. The graph is usually populated within minutes but this may take longer for repositories with many dependencies. Once enabled, the graph is automatically updated with every push to the repository.

Supported package ecosystems

The recommended formats explicitly define which versions are used for all direct and all indirect dependencies. If you use these formats, your dependency graph is more accurate. It also reflects the current build set up and enables the dependency graph to report vulnerabilities in both direct and indirect dependencies.
