"Import Failed. Exception while posting model '616ad3d0-d164-11df-560e-e9c92566beeb'. Exception: Object reference not set to an instance of an object."
Attached is a screenshot of the error. Any help would be appreciated.

I have have not seen your issue before but here is what it says in the ALM 11 manual:
Business Process Models File Import
To work with business process models in ALM, you must first create models
in standard BPMN or EPC modeling tools, and export them to files.
ALM supports the following model and file formats:
BPMN 1.1 models exported to XPDL 2.0/2.1 files
EPC 7.1 models exported to AML files (.xml extension)
During the import process, you can map model and activity attributes to
ALM memo or string fields. This enables you to edit attribute values in ALM.
For each model that you import to ALM, business process model entities are
created under the selected folder: an entity for the model as a whole, and an
entity for each of the model’s activities.
If you use Metastorm ProVision, you should export models using the

From what I have been reading, I believe you have to have Visio 2010 if that is the tool you are using.
Let me know if you have more information on this because I am currently using Visio 2007.

HP ALM 11 relies on the older BPMN 1.1 standard, so if your product doesn't use BPMN 1.1 then it won't work.
N.B. The old version of Bizagi does work but the newer version Bizagi 2.3 doesn't.
An enhancement request was raised in Nov 2011: http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/

Bizagi 2.1 can be downloaded from below link. Biz Models created in this version successfully get imported to ALM and work perfect.
Happy Testing! :)

I am trying to import a set of BPM's for a client using an .xml file. However when I select the file and try to import it I get a message saying:
'No Models are selected for Import. Select at least one model' see attached. As this file has been created by my client from an ARIS system I am unable to determine the problem. Presumably the file is not in the right format, I am guessing. I am trying to find out the package used to create and export the file and will update when I know. Any ideas on why this process does not recognise my file would be greatly appreciated as this process in central to their development process.

Further to my previous post, I tried importing a .xml filr produced from Aris and got the message in the attached file. Anyone know what is wrong.

Recommend removing some boxes go to import and test to see which box with this problem.

Bpm-x (www.bpm-x.com) offers integration with HP ALM (Quality Center) for all leading modeling tools such as ARIS 7.x/9.x, IBM Rational System Architect, ProVision, CaseWise, MEGA, iGrafx, Sparx System Architect, Visio 2010/2013 and others. BPM-X converts the native tool model formats or standards such as XPDL or BPMN into the HP ALM format.
Also it translates the different versions to fit into HP ALM required format. along loading the model into the requirements BPM-X offers a cool feature to generate linearized test cases with a technology called model-based testing (MBT). By this approach the test cases are automatically generated and loaded into HP ALM. Please refer also to our blog http://blog.bpm-x.com/?tag=model-based-testing

BPM-X offers a smart integration between all popular modeling tools such as ARIS, CaseWise, Visio, Sparx Enterprise Architect, IBM BlueWorks Live, OpenText ProVision and many others or BPM systems like TIBCO, Appian, Pega, WebSphere with HP ALM (QualityCenter, QC).
The integration supports:
Generating test cases by model-based testing automated from business process models (EPC, BPMN, UML, Swimlane or any other modeling language)
Combination of requirements coming between a modeling tool and HP ALM
Reverse decomposition to have real end-to-end testes out of complex business architectures down to implementation levels
Generating of BPMN models to be loaded into HP ALM requirements
By using the HP ALM web services REST API BPM-X can bi-directionally access all relevant data. More information you can find at http://www.bpm-x.com/solutions/model-based-testing
Btw, as I can see integration with HP ALM by Catchlimited is discontinued.
