Indicates whether to ignore names provided by users.
 Type: int
 Default value: 0
 Minimum value: 0
 Maximum value: 1

This parameter affects how Gurobi deals with names. If set to 1, subsequent calls to add variables or constraints to the model will ignore the associated names. Names for objectives and the model will also be ignored. In addition, subsequent calls to modify name atributes will have no effect. Note that variables or constraints that had names at the point this parameter was changed to 1 will retain their names. If you wish to discard all name information, you should set this parameter to 1 before adding variables or constraints to the model.

For examples of how to query or modify parameter values from our different APIs, refer to our Parameter Examples.
