The Data Management – Component Rule Checks page of the Preferences dialog


The Data Management – Component Rule Checks page of the Preferences dialog provides a range of violation types to check for issues with a component and its defined models when committing/releasing the component to your connected Workspace.


The Data Management – Component Rule Checks page is part of the main Preferences dialog that is accessed by clicking the control in the upper-right corner of the design space then selecting the Component Rule Checks entry under the Data Management folder.


Component Rule Checks

  • Violation Type Description – displays all violation types in three categories: Violations Associated with ComponentsViolations Associated with Footprints, and Violations Associated with Symbols.
  • Report Mode – displays the current report mode for the associated violation. Click the current mode to access a drop-down from where you can select the desired mode: No Report, Warning, Error, Fatal Error. Any of the user-defined checks at a level of Error or above that fail would prevent the release of a component to the connected Workspace.
