Delete debug port


delete_debug_port [‑quiet] [‑verbose] <ports>...


Name Description
[-quiet] Ignore command errors
[-verbose] Suspend message limits during command execution
<ports> Debug ports to delete




Deletes ports from Vivado™ Lab Edition debug cores in the current project. You can disconnect a signal from a debug port using disconnect_debug_port, or remove the port altogether using this command.


-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.

<ports> - (Required) The <core_name>/<port_name> of the debug port to be removed from the core.


The following example deletes the DATA port from myCore:

delete_debug_port myCore/DATA
Note: Some ports cannot be deleted because an ILA port requires one CLK port and one TRIG port as a minimum.

The following example deletes the trigger ports (TRIG) from the myCore debug core:

delete_debug_port [get_debug_ports myCore/TRIG*]
Note: This example will not delete all TRIG ports from myCore, because an ILA core must have at least one TRIG port. The effect of this command will be to delete the TRIG ports starting at TRIG0 and removing all of them except the last port.
