From time to time I get questions from partners and some prolific IP developers who want to create IP’s automatically as part of their build process instead of having to go through the wizard each time. This is especially important when you have a lot of activities in the IP and you might be changing stuff around a lot. Inside the Orchestrator team, we automate our builds like this so that we can have nightly builds of the product and all IPs we’re working on. I just published a TechNet Wiki article describing a process you can use to manually create an IP, bypassing the wizard, so that you can plug this into your build process.
If you’re one of those who needs to automate your build process, it should do the trick. And, since it’s on the Wiki, you have an opportunity to add more info to it to improve the documentation! Be sure to check it out.
