Sometimes when you are using the SpiraTeam Importer for IBM Rational DOORS, you will get a DXL Runtime Error. This article explains the cause and provides the appropriate solution.
When running the DOORS Import, you may see the error message, "DXL halted with run-time error" and then the DXL output for the DXL Interaction window displays:
"testtesttest-R-E- DXL: <Line:69> null Folder parameter was passed into argument position 1
-I- DXL: execution halted"

Cause of the Error

This error usually occurs if you don't have any folders defined for the project in DOORS.


To prevent this error from occurring, you need to create at least one level of folders in the DOORS module and make sure the requirements are in that folder.
