allow constraints will evaluate direct dependencies for a package.

If any local dependency does not have tags that match a selector within the allow array, then the constraint will fail.

allow constraints are used to explicitly define which dependencies a package should have. They are helpful for defining a hierarchy of packages or creating workflows.

Unlike disallow constraints, allow constraints only apply to direct dependencies.

Allow specific direct dependencies

Use a tag as a selector to allow subsets of local dependencies.

  "disallow": ["api", "internal"]

Allow all dependencies

Use * as a selector to allow all local dependencies.

This is equivalent to not having a constraint at all but is useful when you want to be explicit and have the constraint show up in Commonality Studio or the CLI.

  "disallow": "*"
