CycloneDX Maven Plugin

The CycloneDX Maven plugin creates an aggregate of all dependencies and transitive dependencies of a project and creates a valid CycloneDX bill-of-material document from the results. CycloneDX is a lightweight BOM specification that is easily created, human readable, and simple to parse. The resulting bom.xml can be used with tools such as OWASP Dependency-Track for the continuous analysis of components.

Maven Usage

<!-- uses default configuration -->

Default Values



As of v1.4.0, the default CycloneDX BOM format is v1.1 with included serial number.


The CycloneDX Maven plugin contains the following two goals:

  • makeBom
  • makeAggregateBom

makeBom and makeAggregateBom can optionally be skipped by setting cyclonedx.skip to true.
