BIRT exception error

CLM 502

I was following the tutorial and I installed Galileo with CLM 502. I wanted to do a Parameter of WI_Type = Defect and I get the following. The same happens if I do the exact OOTB tutorial for contributor = jdoe. Hitting the preview gets the error below:

A BIRT exception occurred.
  Plug-in Provider:Eclipse.org
  Plug-in Name:BIRT Data Adapter
  Plug-in ID:org.eclipse.birt.report.data.adapter
  Version:2.5.2.v20100208
  Error Code:exception.error
  Error Message:An exception occurred during processing. Please see the following message for details:

I suspect that you forgot about the double quotes. Without them, Defect will be treated as a variable. If in doubt, post a screen shot showing the said filter.
