You can view and change the BSCAN user scan chain index of the debug core hub by selecting the dbg_hub in the Debug window, selecting the Debug Core Options view in the Properties window, changing the value of the C_USER_SCAN_CHAIN property (see the following figure).

Important: The default values for C_USER_SCAN_CHAIN is 1 for the debug hub core. If using a scan chain value other than 1 for the debug hub core, you must manually change them on the device in the Hardware Manager. Refer to Programming the Hardware Device for more details.
Important: If you plan to use the Microprocessor Debug Module (MDM) or other IP that uses the BSCAN primitive with the Vivado logic debug cores, you need to set the C_USER_SCAN_CHAIN property of the dbg_hub to a user scan chain that does not conflict with the other IPs Boundary Scan Chain setting. Failure to do so results in errors later in the implementation flow.
