Harness ❤️ Open Source

Open Source and Source-Available Options

As supporters of the open source community, we believe it is important to be clear when our software is free and open source, and when it isn’t. Below is a breakdown of the licensing of our free and open source software (FOSS) and our free and source-available software.

Benefits Of Open Source And Source-Available Code

For Engineers
For Engineers

You now have frictionless access to a globally-adopted and category-leading CI/CD platform, one with AI-powered intelligence that automates deployments and rollbacks. Get back your nights and weekends for more important things than fighting toil. And the best part, you can collaborate with a global community of users just like you.

Open Licenses
Open Licenses

The open and accessible licenses give you the right to use, modify and distribute the code, with straightforward limits on using our code to compete with us. We chose this approach to empower our users with elements that they love from licenses like Apache that give them free and open access to the code, while assuring Harness is able to continue to provide industry-leading enterprise support to our customers.

For Enterprise
For Enterprise
