java.lang.NullPointerException

There are no available Samebug tips for this exception. Do you have an idea how to solve this issue? A short tip would help users who saw this issue last week.

  • The console output of the job including the stacktrace is sufficient to explain the cause of the problem. There is an assumption in the plugin that there were changes which triggered the build, and the cause of the exception is that there were no changes. The triggering job was manually triggered. The solution is either to have the multiple-scm plugin not return null for changes() or to have the clone-workspace-scm accept null for a changeset.
