2015.1 Vivado IP Flows - I get a java.lan.nullPointerException when selecting context menu option "Associate Clocks..." in Ports and Interfaces workspace from IP Packager

Description

I open my block diagram and right click on a user IP block.

I then select "Edit" in IP Packager and OK on the "Confirm Overwrite" window.

From IP packager I select "Ports and Interfaces" then right click on a custom interface and select "Associate Clocks".

At this point I receive an internal Exception:

Solution

This exception will occur if the required interface definition for the user interface is not found in the paths listed in the IP repository.

To resolve this issue, add the required interface definition paths into IP repository.

Vivado 2015.2 will be updated to handle the missing interface definition and issue a meaningful message.
