Class SeverityMatchFilter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Configurable, Contextualizable, Filter

    public class SeverityMatchFilter
    extends AutomaticBean
    implements Filter

    Filter SeverityMatchFilter decides audit events according to the severity level of the event.

    SeverityMatchFilter can suppress Checks that have Treewalker or Checker as parent module.

    • Property severity - Specify the severity level of this filter. Type is com.puppycrawl.tools.checkstyle.api.SeverityLevel. Default value is error.
    • Property acceptOnMatch - Control whether the filter accepts an audit event if and only if there is a match between the event's severity level and property severity. If acceptOnMatch is false, then the filter accepts an audit event if and only if there is not a match between the event's severity level and property severity. Type is boolean. Default value is true.

    For example, the following configuration fragment directs the Checker to not report audit events with severity level info:

     <module name="SeverityMatchFilter">
       <property name="severity" value="info"/>
       <property name="acceptOnMatch" value="false"/>
     </module>
     

    Parent is com.puppycrawl.tools.checkstyle.Checker
