Ignoring a Missing linked source file warning

Postby Sharon on Wed Oct 16, 2019 6:20 am

Hi there,

I have a link to an external file in my project (I plan to add this file when I post the doc - someone else is the owner).

I am getting a warning in my Flare build log: 10001 – Missing linked source file … I would like Flare to “skip” this link when it builds the output. I want the link in the output, just not the warning. Is there a way to do that? Maybe by setting some attribute to the HTML A tag? Or in the CSS files?

I know that I can set Flare to ignore this warning in the target or global Flare settings, or in the CICD process, but I do not want to ignore ALL 10001 warnings, just for that specific link.

What can I do?

Thanks in advance,

It's a warning not an error, so you should be able to produce your built output with no adverse effect.

Try building it, then:
Open the output and click the link. You should get an error message.
Put a dummy file at the link location, open the output and click the link. It should go to the dummy file.

If it does as described, then apart from the warning in your build log it's doing what it's supposed to do, and you shouldn't need to worry about it.
