    • Locally in file - The suppression will be stored in a parasoft.suppress file located in the same location as the corresponding source file. See In-file Suppressions for details.

    titleSuppressing false positives in MISRA compliance workflows
    If you implement a workflow for achieving compliance with the MISRA standard, you can exclude false positive violations from MISRA Compliance reports created on DTP. When you suppress a violation and specify a reason for suppression that begins with "false positive", the violation will not be included in MISRA Compliance reports. See the DTP User Guide for details about the Parasoft compliance solution

If you are using the MISRA Compliance Pack for DTP, see the DTP User Guide to learn more about how suppressions are handled by MISRA compliance reporting on DTP.
