Connecting Tidelift projects

Tidelift projects map to Components in Compass, which can be set up as libraries, applications, or services. In the scenario below, we'll use an application example.

To get Tidelift data about a component in Compass, you need to link the component to Tidelift under Repositories and click where it says "Add the repository where the code is stored for this component".


Next, navigate to the corresponding project page in Tidelift. Select the project URL, for example: "" and copy the link in the URL area in the Applications screen (see screenshot below).

Add a display name in Link text area and any other relevant information in the surrounding text boxes.


Metrics appear

The "Tidelift Overview"

The Tidelift Overview shows project health, scan status, and denied packages. The Denied Packages section highlights the packages your team may need to discuss next steps on. 



If you receive the message "Please wait... We are fetching details from Tidelift" it means you should doublecheck that you have the repository URL set up correctly.
