As documented by Books Online (, to obtain all project parameters and the parameters from all packages, when executing catalog.get_parameter_values, the "package_name" input parameter should be set to NULL.  However when running the  catalog.get_parameter_values stored procedure with @package_name set to NULL, it returns an error instead stating "The input parameter cannot be null".

** Excerpt from BOL - catalog.get_parameter_values  **
[ @package_name = ] package_name
 The name of the package. Specify the package name to retrieve all project parameters and the parameters from a specific package. Use NULL to retrieve all project parameters and the parameters from all packages. The package_name is nvarchar(260).

The stored procedure fix is fairly simple, I think. I have created a modified version of catalog.get_parameter_values as described here: Please use at your own discretion.
