When a Rogue activates their Uncanny Dodge against extra damage effects, does the feature halve all of the damage or only the weapon's damage?

To exemplify, if struck by a Planetar's great sword, the Rogue takes 4d6+7 slashing damage plus 4d8 radiant because of Angelic Weapons. Does Uncanny Dodge half all of that damage or only the great sword portion?


All Damage!

Uncanny Dodge states, emphasis mine (PHB, 96)

You can use your reaction to halve the attack's damage against you.

This is for ALL damage from the attack, not just the Melee weapon damage.
