  • Ignore unresolved reference <fully qualified symbol name>. The fully qualified name of the symbol will be added to the list of ignored references (File | Settings/Preferences | Editor | Inspections - Python - Unresolved references).

    Ignore unresolved references for Foo.f

  • Mark all attributes of <fully qualified type name> as ignored. In this case, the list of ignored references (File | Settings/Preferences | Editor | Inspections - Python - Unresolved references) will be modified with the fully qualified name of the type with the wildcard (*) at the end.
