Configuring WhiteSource with several WhiteSource products

In the case of the use of several WhiteSource products, it is recommended to aggregate all the data into one aggregated product, and then to create single integration of WhiteSource into Vulcan by the following steps:

  1. First, create the WhiteSource connector and insert the "User key":
    User Key - Identifier for the user in WhiteSource.
    You can get the relevant key by navigating to User's profile --> User Keys --> Copy key

  2. To create the aggregated Product, go to "Products"-->"Admin products":

  3. Choose all the active projects you want to aggregate into a single product and create a new aggregated product.

  4. On the newly created product, go to settings and copy the API token and insert it
    into Vulcan.
    (Go to the newly created product --> Settings --> Product Token).

  5. Hit "Create".
