Optionally, you can use the Vivado IP integrator to add IP to your block design. If you selected a board for the project, the Board window is available in IP integrator in the toolbar by selecting Window>Boards. This window shows the IP interfaces that are available on the selected board, and which of those interfaces have been used.

Vivado IP integrator instantiates the pre-configured IP and assigns the physical board constraints, such as I/O location and I/O standards for the IP, as well as any related parameters used for implementation and device configuration.

After configuration, all of the board physical constraints are automatically passed to the downstream synthesis and implementation tools. For more information on using the platform board flow, see this link in the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Designing IP Subsystems Using IP Integrator (UG994).
