ORT Scanner is used to scan the source code of the dependencies to detect license and copyright findings in the source code. We recommend using ScanCode Toolkit as the scanner.

Run scan with the command:

ort --info --force-overwrite scan -i analyzer/analyzer-result.yml -o scanner

or with Docker:

docker run -v $PWD:/project -v ~/.ort:/root/.ort --rm --env-file ~/.ort/config/.env \
   doubleopen/ort:latest --info --force-overwrite \
   scan \
   -i /project/analyzer/analyzer-result.yml \
   -o /project/scanner

The Scanner outputs the result in scanner/scan-result.yml, which can then be used as an input for the Evaluator.
