Information in this document applies to any platform.
When exporting a flex family with multiple branches using CSDT, the export fails with NullPointerException:
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
An example of a flex family with multiple branches:
In this flex family you can see two branches at the parent level - support_P and 2ndsupport_P.
If you branch out at parent level, you need a secondary child (e.g. 2ndsupport_C) as well in order to complete the branch/flex family.
If you branch out at parent level with no child member under it, it is considered as incomplete flex family for whole product.
Certain components might be more forgiving but incomplete flex families are not supported - it's missing an essential member.
