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 and Las alertas del dependabot are configured at an enterprise level by the enterprise owner. Para obtener más información, consulta la sección "Habilitar la gráfica de dependencias y las Las alertas del dependabot en tu cuenta empresarial".

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.

When you create a pull request containing changes to dependencies that targets the default branch, GitHub uses the dependency graph to add dependency reviews to the pull request. These indicate whether the dependencies contain vulnerabilities and, if so, the version of the dependency in which the vulnerability was fixed. For more information, see "About dependency review."

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 enterprise owner can enable the dependency graph and Las alertas del dependabot. For more information, see "Enabling the dependency graph and Las alertas del dependabot on your enterprise account."

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.
