4.2.2.1. Modifying Entity Name Assignments

Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software supports assignments that include instance names without a corresponding entity name.
  • "a_entity:a|b_entity:b|c_entity:c" (includes deprecated entity names)
  • a|b|c” (omits deprecated entity names)

While the current version of the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software still accepts entity names in the .qsf, the Compiler ignores the entity name. The Compiler generates a warning message upon detection of an entity names in the .qsf. Whenever possible, you should remove entity names from assignments, and discontinue reliance on entity-based assignments. Future versions of the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software may eliminate all support for entity-based assignments.
