    You can also add IP to the BD by opening the IP catalog from the Project Manager menu in the Flow Navigator. Use the Search field to find specific IP in the IP catalog window as well.

    Multiple IP can be added to the BD canvas at once by selecting multiple IP in the IP catalog and using one of the methods described above.
