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.

  • After creating a plan and a deployment project using the plan, it's possible to delete the plan, leaving the project without a plan. This seems to be a expected, as this message is shown when the plan is deleted: {quote} Deployment projects related to this plan The following deployment projects are related to this plan and will not run when this plan is removed: My Deployment Project {quote} However, this is causing bugs like [this one|https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-16000] when cloning or the following stacktrace when creating an environment, failing to create it: {noformat} java.lang.NullPointerException at
