2015.1 Vivado IP Flows - IP Packager does not import parameters if they are marked as hidden

Description

I have a HDL project that I would like to package as user IP. 

In the top level HDL file there are multiple parameters.

I would like to hide some of them.

I uncheck the option to
"Make all imported HDL parameters visible" (the parameters are not imported).

The Customization Parameters window allows me to re-import parameters into the Package IP window.

If I try to reimport the parameters after selecting that I do not want to "Make all imported HDL parameters visible," I would expect that all of the parameters would be imported in the Hidden Parameters folder.  

However, none of the parameters get imported.

Solution

This issue will be fixed in Vivado 2015.2.
 
To work around the issue, you will need to import the parameters with "Make all imported HDL parameters visible" selected, which is on by default, and then hide each parameter that you would like to be hidden using the edit window.
