Import a JSON File¶
To import a ScanCode JSON file:
Open the File menu and select Import JSON File (keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+I or ⌘+I).
In the dialog window that opens, navigate to the JSON file you want to import, select the file and click Open.
You will then be prompted to choose a filename and location to save the JSON file as a SQLite database file. Add a filename, select the folder in which you want to save the SQLite database file, and click Save.
ScanCode Workbench will then create a SQLite database file from your JSON file, indicated by the status message
Creating Database ...
Once the process has finished, the status message will be replaced by an expandable code tree (the Directory Tree) and, to the right of the tree, a table (the Table View) displaying provenance information generated by ScanCode.
We’ve provided a set of sample scans that you can quickly review in ScanCode Workbench in order to get a sense of its functionality and the types of information captured by a scan. The samples are located at https://github.com/nexB/scancode-workbench/tree/develop/samples.
