Which part properties are used by the packager?

In our current design flow we have set "Part Name", "Part Number" and "Part Label" on all our components.

Only, we don't know which ones are really necessary. As a precaution we set Part Name and Part Number to the same values. And we mostly ignore Part Label.


So, which property MUST be on the part in the schematic in order for the packager to work? When I delete all three properties, the packager complains. Is there a search order in the packager?

Generally, how does the packager find the cell and pin mapping, given a schematic symbol?
