When attempting to import XML file using P6 web services operation ImportProjectAsyncASAP,
the following error occurs.

ERROR com.primavera.guiservices.impexp.ImportExportServiceImpl Error happened in the Import/Export Project Service
  at com.primavera.integration.client.xml.xmlimporter.XMLImporter.a(
  at com.primavera.integration.client.xml.xmlimporter.XMLImporter.importProjects(

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  2. Receive successful SOAP response with message "An Asynchronous import job has been created. Check the status of the job using job ID.".
  3. Login to P6 web, navigate to "View service status" page, notice that the job has failed with no error message in the import log.
  4. Check the P6 web access logs and notice the NullPointerException.
