  • I was adding a link to an issue, in the "Link issue" page. Filled in an issue number in field "Issue". Then pressed [select issue]. JIRA gave the error message "You have no issues in your current search." Then I filled in the issue number in QUICK SEARCH and pressed enter. The result was a nullpointer exception: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: class com.atlassian.jira.web.util.HelpUtil : java.lang.NullPointerException at java.beans.Beans.instantiate(Beans.java:211) at
