Damage modeling with UMAT

Dear all,
      I am using a Abaqus modeller with fortran subroutines. I have written a UMAT subroutine and now want to apply some damage initiation-evolution criteria. But I get the following error: a damage initiation property was used with a user material.
I wanted to apply the criteria externally from the subroutine.. How can I go through with this problem? I tried different criteria (stress and strain based) to check if it is a matter of the output variables... No result..
Is it the case that I should have my damage code within UMAT?
All the best,
