The following figure shows the Repository option.

Figure 1. IP Repository Option

To change settings for the Repository, from Flow Navigator > Settings, click IP > Repository. Manage locations for IP (either custom-packaged IP or third-party IP) with the following actions:

  • Click the Add button to specify the location of the IP definitions. The Repository Manager hierarchically searches within the specified path for IP definitions. The IP is listed after the directory is specified. When you add an IP repository, a dialog box displays with a list of IP that are in the repository. The IP that contain a gray icon are disabled, and those with a yellow icon are enabled.
  • Use the Remove button to remove a repository listing. The IP catalog shows that the repository is no longer present.
  • Change the search order of the Repositories using the up and down arrows.

Update the contents of the IP catalog with the IP within each repository, click Apply, then OK.

Tip: As an alternative to using the Repository Manager of the IP Settings dialog box, you can also use the right-click menu in the Vivado IP catalog, and add the repository directly to the IP catalog.
