Document Table of Contents Logic Lock (Standard) Assignment Precedence

You can encounter conflicts during the assignment of entities and nodes to Logic Lock (Standard) regions. For example, an entire top-level entity might be assigned to one region and a node within this top-level entity assigned to another region.

To resolve conflicting assignments, the Intel® Quartus® Prime software maintains an order of precedence for Logic Lock (Standard) assignments. The following order of precedence, from highest to lowest, applies:

  1. Exact node-level assignments
  2. Path-based and wildcard assignments
  3. Hierarchical assignments
Note: To open the Priority dialog box, select Logic Lock (Standard) Regions Properties > General > Priority. You can change the priority of path-based and wildcard assignments with the Up and Down buttons in the Priority dialog box. To prioritize assignments between regions, you must select multiple Logic Lock (Standard) regions and then open the Priority dialog box from the Logic Lock (Standard) Regions Properties dialog box.
