Scan Summaries

License Summary

The License Summary displays a bar chart of the number of times a detected license appears. The "Total Files Scanned" displays the number of files that were scanned. As you select a directory in the file tree, the number will update to show the number of files scanned in that directory. In the chart summary we have included "No License Found" to represent the number of files that did not have a license detected.
