2015.1 Vivado IP Flows - With the IP Packager open I added a new IP from the IP Catalog into my project, but this was not added automatically to the IP File Groups


My open IP Packager project is not automatically updating the File Groups when I add a new IP from the IP Catalog to the underlying project.

For instance, I have an IP which I have opened in the IP Packager. 

I need to make the modification to add a new IP from the Catalog.

I generate the IP and instantiate it in my top level.

Some of the tabs in the open IP Packager GUI update to show me modifications or updates that need to be merged. 


In the below screen capture, I added the "Adder Subtractor" IP core, (highlighted).

However, the File Groups tab on the right hand side has not been updated to include the XCI file, "c_addsub_0.xci" in the packaged IP:

Is this a known issue?

Is there an existing work-around available to update my IP?


This issue is fixed in Vivado 2015.2.

In Vivado 2014.4 and older, the work-around is as follows:

  1. Close the IP Packager
  2. Delete the "component.xml" file.
  3. Re-package the IP, using "Tools -> Create and Package IP"
  4. A new "component.xml" file is added to the project and the "File Groups" tab in the IP Packager will now include the previously missing XCI file.

In Vivado 2015.1, it is possible to work around this issue by doing the following:

  1. Close the "IP Packager"
  2. Re-open the IP Packager by double-clicking on the component.xml file underneath the "IP-XACT" folder in the Hierarchy pane.
