[-verbose] Suspend message limits during command execution
[<checks>] The list of checks to reset.


Methodology, Object


Reset the specified methodology checks to the defaults provided by the Vivado Design Suite. This will restore the check to its default configuration, including any changes to the IS_ENABLED or SEVERITY properties.

The IS_ENABLED property can be modified on a specific methodology check to disable the rule from being checked, even when it is specified directly in the report_methodology command.

The SEVERITY property is an enumerated property that can be modified to change the severity associated with a specific methodology check when a violation is found during the report_methodology command. The supported values are: FATAL, ERROR, "CRITICAL WARNING", WARNING, ADVISORY


-quiet - (Optional) Execute the command quietly, returning no messages from the command. The command also returns TCL_OK regardless of any errors encountered during execution.
Note: Any errors encountered on the command-line, while launching the command, will be returned. Only errors occurring inside the command will be trapped.
-verbose - (Optional) Temporarily override any message limits and return all messages from this command.
Note: Message limits can be defined with the set_msg_config command.

<checks> - (Required) The list of one or more DRC rule checks to reset to the tool defaults.


The following example modifies the IS_ENABLED and SEVERITY properties for the CHECK-4 methodology check, reports the properties of the check to see the changes, and then resets the methodology check to its default setting:
set_property IS_ENABLED false [get_methodology_checks CHECK-4]
set_property SEVERITY Warning [get_methodology_checks CHECK-4]
report_property [get_methodology_checks CHECK-4]
reset_methodology_check [get_methodology_checks CHECK-4]
report_property [get_methodology_checks CHECK-4]
