icon-developers.png Instrument applications for open source library analysis

Instrumenting an application with a Contrast agent identifies open-source libraries included in an application. Contrast identifies any vulnerabilities found in your libraries and also confirms if the library is used at runtime.


  1. Install and configure a Contrast agent for the language that corresponds to the language your application uses.

    You can download agents from a package manager or repository.

    You can install agents directly or use integrations that work with Contrast.

  2. Run the application to verify that Contrast is working. For example, click on your application's web interface or send some API or CLI commands.
