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.

  • It would seem that if a user has a custom workflow with custom statuses, you get a null pointer in BulkWorkflowTransition, getDestinationStatus. This is triggered by the jsp which is trying to display the icon for the destination status. You can see some attached data where you can generate this easily here, https://support.atlassian.com/browse/JSP-3975.
