2017.2 Vivado IP Flows - The yellow banner indicating that an IP instance is out of date does not show in Vivado 2017.2

Description

I have a user packaged IP in my block design (BD). 

In Vivado 2017.1 or Vivado 2017.2, if I edit and then re-package an IP that is used in the BD, Vivado does not show the yellow banner with the links "Show_IP_Status" and "Upgrade_Later".

The yellow banner is shown in the Vivado 2016.4 release. It is helpful for indicating that an IP had changed and giving a quick link to the IP status report.
 
  • Does this mean that the IP change was not recognized?
  • Is there an option to get the yellow banner notification to appear?
 

Solution

In Vivado 2017.1 and 2017.2 the Yellow banner with the "Show_IP_Status" and "Upgrade_Later" options was unintentionally disabled.

Changes to an IP in a block design or instantiated in an RTL design will still be recognized.

To see the state of the IP cores in a project run the following command from the Tcl console or Tools -> Report -> Report IP Status from the main Vivado menu.

report_ip_status -name ip_report

This issue is fixed in Vivado 2017.3.
