This folder contains the checked-in report file of known API rule violations. The file violation_exceptions.list is used by Make rule during OpenAPI spec generation to make sure that no new API rule violation is introduced into our code base.
The report file violation_exceptions.list is in format of:
And the violation list is sorted alphabetically in each of the <RULE>, <PACKAGE>, <TYPE>, <FIELD> levels.
Make rule returns an error when the newly generated violation report differs from this checked-in violation report.
Our goal is that exceptions should never be added to this list, only fixed and removed. For new APIs, this is a hard requirement. For APIs that are e.g. being moved between versions or groups without other changes, it is OK for your API reviewer to make an exception.
If you're removing violations from the exception list, or if you have good reasons to add new violations to this list, please update the file using:
make generated_files UPDATE_API_KNOWN_VIOLATIONS=true
It is up to API reviewers to review the list and make sure new APIs follow our API conventions.
NOTE: please don't hide changes to this file in a "generated changes" commit, treat it as source code instead.
