Parent category: Violations Associated with Components
Default report mode:
This violation occurs when at least one placed instance of a Component Item Revision - placed from an Altium Vault - is detected to be in an inapplicable state. For example, the Component Item is currently Depracated or Obsolete and should therefore have no place on the latest design spin! Applicability is determined through the Allowed to be used in designs option, in the State Properties dialog. From within the Edit Lifecycle Definitions dialog, access this dialog for the required state, either by double-clicking on the state's entry within the parent lifecycle definition, or by selecting its entry and clicking the edit icon that appears (). When this option is enabled, an Item Revision in this state is permitted to be used in a design. It is deemed to be Applicable. If this option is disabled, an Item Revision in this state cannot be validly used, and is deemed Inapplicable (or non-applicable).
If compiler errors and warnings are enabled for display on the schematic (enabled on the Schematic - Compiler page of the Preferences dialog) an offending object will display a colored squiggle beneath it. A notification is also displayed in the Messages panel in the following format:
Component <Designator> <Comment>: Revision under unapplicable lifecycle state,
Use the Item Manager dialog to choose a replacement Component Item Revision that is valid for use in the design. Do this for each component that is in an inapplicable state. Alternatively, you can switch-out an existing Component Item Revision for a different revision, or revision of a different Component Item, at the individual component level, through the associated Properties for Schematic Component dialog.
