    Create/Import of an enumeration type results in a DXL error
    

Problem conclusion

  • DOORS has an issue with returning incorrect color values
    when the enumaration is set to default. The Integration has
    workaround this issue by assigning the correct default value
    to colors if the enumeration is set to default.
    

Temporary fix
