Vivado - Is there an equivalent option of ISE "Macro Search Path" in Vivado?

Description

ISE searches for the netlist files of black-box modules in the paths specified in the "Macro Search Path" option.

Is there an equivalent option for this in Vivado?

Solution

In Vivado, the netlist files of black-box modules can be added into project sources directly. 

Otherwise, Vivado searches for the netlist files using the "EDIF_EXTRA_SEARCH_PATHS" property. 

To set this property, use the following Tcl command.

set_property EDIF_EXTRA_SEARCH_PATHS  <the path>  [current_fileset]

You can also set this property by using the "Add Directories..." button when adding sources.
