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.

  • Apologies, I'm unable to reproduce this... Created a custom issue type, but used a 'http://blah' url, and wished to change it. A restart of orion appears to have fixed it, but trying to delete the issue before complained about there being no such issue type with that id (even though it was checking the correct id), and clicking Edit before restarting orion gave: 2003-12-10 12:59:43,107 [ApplicationServerThread] ERROR webwork.dispatcher.ServletDispatcher - Could not execute action java.lang.NullPointerException at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.admin.constants.AbstractEditConstant.doDefault(AbstractEditConstant.java:39) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(NativeMethodAccessorImpl.java:39) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.java:25) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:324) at com.atlassian.util.profiling.object.ObjectProfiler.profiledInvoke(ObjectProfiler.java:68) at webwork.action.ActionSupport.invokeCommand(ActionSupport.java:426) at webwork.action.ActionSupport.execute(ActionSupport.java:146) at com.atlassian.jira.action.JiraActionSupport.execute(JiraActionSupport.java:46) at webwork.dispatcher.GenericDispatcher.executeAction(GenericDispatcher.java:131) at com.atlassian.jira.web.dispatcher.JiraServletDispatcher.service(JiraServletDispatcher.java:361) at javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:336) at com.evermind._hb.doFilter(.:59) at com.opensymphony.module.sitemesh.filter.PageFilter.parsePage(PageFilter.java:129) at com.opensymphony.module.sitemesh.filter.PageFilter.doFilter(PageFilter.java:61) at com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.SitemeshExcludePathFilter.doFilter(SitemeshExcludePathFilter.java:39) at com.evermind._ha.doFilter(.:16) at com.atlassian.seraph.filter.SecurityFilter.doFilter(SecurityFilter.java:161) at com.evermind._ha.doFilter(.:20) at com.atlassian.seraph.filter.LoginFilter.doFilter(LoginFilter.java:181) at com.evermind._ha.doFilter(.:20) at com.atlassian.util.profiling.filters.ProfilingFilter.doFilter(ProfilingFilter.java:132) at com.evermind._ha.doFilter(.:20) at com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.ActionCleanupDelayFilter.doFilter(ActionCleanupDelayFilter.java:26) at com.evermind._ha.doFilter(.:20) at com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.AppConsistencyFilter.doFilter(AppConsistencyFilter.java:92) at com.evermind._ha.doFilter(.:20) at com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.EncodingFilter.doFilter(EncodingFilter.java:53) at com.evermind._cub._pod(.:383) at com.evermind._cub._bmc(.:177) at com.evermind._ax._ltc(.:666) at com.evermind._ax._uab(.:191) at com.evermind._bf.run(.:62)
