After selecting the Report Strategy for a Run, you can decide to add, delete, or edit reports by selecting a report and clicking on the corresponding buttons in the Reports tab, or right-clicking over any existing report, in the Run Properties window:

  • Add Report (+): Select the Run Step and the Report Type, then review and edit the report options. If an option is not visible, you can add it through the MORE_OPTIONS field. The default unique report name is based on the run name, the flow step, and the report command name.

  • Delete Report (-): This button deletes the selected report from the Run Report Strategy. This operation cannot be undone.
  • Edit Report (): Edit the report name, enable or disable the report, or edit the report options.

To Enable or Disable a report, select the report, right-click on it, and use the contextual popup menu.

After a Run has completed, you can add new reports for a particular step or enable a report that was previously disabled. In this situation, you must click on the play button to generate the report.

Important: When generating a new report after the run has completed, Vivado opens the checkpoint of the corresponding flow step in the background to generate the report file. This operation blocks most Vivado IDE functions, including the Tcl Console, until the report has been successfully generated. Generating the report can take a few minutes to over an hour depending on your design size and the complexity of the report.

Any modification to a Report Strategy made for a specific run cannot be saved as a new report strategy. Instead, you must create new report strategies or modify any existing user-defined report strategies in the Project Settings window as explained in the next section.
