You need to put { 0, NULL } at the end of primary_assets_flag_coding & asset_type_coding, i.e:

static const value_string primary_assets_flag_coding[] = { { 0, "Returns assets within the collapsed/collection/group asset" }, { 1, "Returns the primary assets " },
    { 0, NULL }

Also: the source you supplied doesn't compile on my windows system.

Something wrong with the
  static const fragment_items msg_frag_items =     {...};

Did you receive compilation errors ??

Obviously compilation errors need to be fixed before continuing.

It also looks like you have a bunch of BASE_NONE's for FT_UINT16 types & etc.

That isn't going to work.

{"Planner Retention","oqtp.planner_retention",FT_UINT16, BASE_NONE,NULL, 0x0,
	 "Planner Retention", HFILL}},
