  • Since upgrading to 1.576 (from 1.561 IIRC), I'm getting NPE on different pages. When I trigger a specific job, I'm getting the following stacktrace : FATAL: null java.lang.NullPointerException at java.lang.String$CaseInsensitiveComparator.compare(String.java:1177) at java.lang.String$CaseInsensitiveComparator.compare(String.java:1170) at java.lang.String.compareToIgnoreCase(String.java:1220) at hudson.util.CaseInsensitiveComparator.compare(CaseInsensitiveComparator.java:40) at hudson.util.CaseInsensitiveComparator.compare(CaseInsensitiveComparator.java:34) at jenkins.model.IdStrategy$CaseInsensitive.compare(IdStrategy.java:160) at jenkins.model.IdStrategy.equals(IdStrategy.java:78) at hudson.model.User.getOrCreate(User.java:393) at hudson.model.User.getAll(User.java:475) at hudson.model.User$FullNameIdResolver.resolveCanonicalId(User.java:903) at hudson.model.User.get(User.java:358) at hudson.model.User.get(User.java:331) at hudson.model.User.get(User.java:438) at hudson.model.Cause$UserIdCause.getUserName(Cause.java:413) at hudson.model.Cause$UserIdCause.print(Cause.java:423) at hudson.model.StreamBuildListener.started(StreamBuildListener.java:74) at hudson.model.Run.execute(Run.java:1725) at hudson.model.FreeStyleBuild.run(FreeStyleBuild.java:43) at hudson.model.ResourceController.execute(ResourceController.java:88) at hudson.model.Executor.run(Executor.java:233) As the stacktrace is about users, I went to the Jenkins users page.
