VS: [FOSSology] Issues with Bulk Recognitions remove license function

Toni Päärni


We are running: "Version: [3.5.0], Branch: [HEAD], Commit: [#171d4d] 2019/04/12 08:47 UTC built @ 2019/04/12 09:09 UTC". Has been done on the basis of binaries from the Fossology project: FOSSology-3.5.0-debian8jessie.tar.gz.

(We had an issue with installing first based on 9stretch, but completed the installation with 8jessie, as the platform was jessie. Not sure if this could have an impact. But the problem likely was same also earlier version 3.2.0RC, but unable to reproduce that now.)

Some further testing: just doing the remove-action with bulk-recognition does not work either. Addition works, but remove acts as if it was an addition by the bulk (see screenshot). In the screenshot, you can see also the bulk history. Those Dual-licence additions should be removals.

Best Regards

may I ask for two things to help us:

* which version? (or how did you install it) (it is the grey text in the menu area)
* Would it be possible to share a screenshot of the Bulk Regocnition Panel just before your start the scan?

Kind regards, Michael

I've tried to use the Bulk Recognition to simultaneously remove one and add another license.
When doing this, the Bulk Recognition just adds both of the licenses and doesn't remove the other.
I would be very glad and interested to know why our Fossology is doing such a thing and how to fix it?

PS. I also have the same issue when just removing with the Bulk Recognition. It turns it to an "add license" for some reason.
