Dependency-Track is an intelligent Component Analysis platform that allows organizations to identify and reduce risk in the software supply chain. Dependency-Track takes a unique and highly beneficial approach by leveraging the capabilities of Software Bill of Materials (SBOM). This approach provides capabilities that traditional Software Composition Analysis (SCA) solutions cannot achieve.

Dependency-Track monitors component usage across all versions of every application in its portfolio in order to proactively identify risk across an organization. The platform has an API-first design and is ideal for use in CI/CD environments.

Quickstart (Docker Compose)

# Downloads the latest Docker Compose file
curl -LO

# Starts the stack using Docker Compose
docker-compose up -d

Quickstart (Docker Swarm)

# Downloads the latest Docker Compose file
curl -LO

# Initializes Docker Swarm (if not previously initialized)
docker swarm init

# Starts the stack using Docker Swarm
docker stack deploy -c docker-compose.yml dtrack

Quickstart (Manual Execution)

# Pull the image from the Docker Hub OWASP repo
docker pull dependencytrack/bundled

# Creates a dedicated volume where data can be stored outside the container
docker volume create --name dependency-track

# Run the bundled container with 8GB RAM on port 8080
docker run -d -m 8192m -p 8080:8080 --name dependency-track -v dependency-track:/data dependencytrack/bundled

NOTICE: Always use official binary releases in production.


Dependency-Track has three distribution variants. They are:

Package Package Format Recommended Supported Docker Download
API Server Executable WAR
Frontend Single Page Application
Bundled Executable WAR ☑️

API Server

The API Server contains an embedded Jetty server and all server-side functionality, but excludes the frontend user interface. This variant is new as of Dependency-Track v4.0.


The Frontend is the user interface that is accessible in a web browser. The Frontend is a Single Page Application (SPA) that can be deployed independently of the Dependency-Track API Server. This variant is new as of Dependency-Track v3.8.


The Bundled variant combines the API Server and the Frontend user interface. This variant was previously referred to as the executable war and was the preferred distribution from Dependency-Track v3.0 - v3.8. This variant is supported but deprecated and will be discontinued in a future release.


The Traditional variant combines the API Server and the Frontend user interface and must be deployed to a Servlet container. This variant is not supported, deprecated, and will be discontinued in a future release.

Deploying on Kubernetes with Helm

You can install on Kubernetes using the community-maintained chart like this:

Helm v3:

helm repo add evryfs-oss
helm install dependency-track evryfs-oss/dependency-track --namespace dependency-track --create-namespace

Helm v2:

helm repo add evryfs-oss
helm install evryfs-oss/dependency-track --name dependency-track --namespace dependency-track --create-namespace

by default, it will install PostgreSQL and use persistent volume claims for the data-directory used for vulnerability feeds.
