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]
