Vault Login shows Illegal Null Parameter Extension Error

November 18, 2022 Bob Felton


When Vault 2022 or 2023 users sign into their Vault client with an Autodesk ID authentication method, this 'Extension Error' appears:  'Illegal null parameter':




This 'Illegal null parameter' is caused by a temporary access disruption to the Autodesk cloud services that authenticate an Autodesk ID account's access to Vault .



If available, use either the Vault account authentication method or Windows account authentication method until the Autodesk ID authentication method is once again available.
