Document Table of Contents Modifying Rule Severity Levels

You can increase the severity level of a Design Assistant rule to match the importance of the rule for your design. You cannot decrease the severity level below the default. Design Assistant messages and reports reflect the rule severity level. You can filter and hide rule messages based on the severity level that you specify.

To customize rule severity level, follow these steps:

  1. Specify initial Design Assistant Settings, as Setting Up Design Assistant describes.
  2. In the Design Assistant Rule Settings page, select the rule with a Severity that you want to change. You can only change the severity level of parent rules. Subrules for each stage must reflect the parent rule Severity level.
  3. Click the Severity cell and select Low, Medium, High, Critical, or Fatal. Design Assistant reports the severity level you specify for the rule violations. Fatal violations cause failure of the Compiler stage.
    Figure 39. Modifying Rule Severity Level
    Note: Fatal violations indicate conditions that cause design failure and therefore cause the Compiler stage to be unsuccessful. You must correct the fatal condition, reduce the rule Severity, or create a rule waiver before proceeding to the next Compiler stage.
