Assert that x has rank equal to rank.

This Op checks that the rank of x is equal to rank.

If x has a different rank, message, as well as the shape of x are printed, and InvalidArgumentError is raised.

x Tensor.
rank Scalar integer Tensor.
message A string to prefix to the default message.
name A name for this operation (optional). Defaults to "assert_rank".

Op raising InvalidArgumentError unless x has specified rank. If static checks determine x has correct rank, a no_op is returned. This can be used with tf.control_dependencies inside of tf.functions to block followup computation until the check has executed.

InvalidArgumentError if the check can be performed immediately and x does not have rank rank. The check can be performed immediately during eager execution or if the shape of x is statically known.
