java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

  • h3. The Problem The fix to JRA-13469 only works for the View Issue screen. It does not work in the following screens accessed from the View Issue screen: - Manage Attachments - Manage Links - Manage Trackbacks I produced this behaviour by setting a permission scheme that grants all permissions to only User A and to the current assignee; no permissions to anyone else. I made User B the assignee of a sub-task, but he was not the assignee of the super-task, and as such did not have permission to view it. You also get the following stack trace in the log file when accessing those screens for any sub-task: {noformat} 2008-04-09 10:55:14,575 http-8090-Processor3 ERROR [webwork.util.ServletValueStack] METHOD: "issueVisible", exception: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The issue must not be null! at com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PermissionCheckBean.isIssueVisible(PermissionCheckBean.java:52) 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:585) at webwork.util.InjectionUtils$DefaultInjectionImpl.invoke(InjectionUtils.java:61) at webwork.util.InjectionUtils.invoke(InjectionUtils.java:52) at webwork.util.ValueStack.findValue(ValueStack.java:426) at webwork.util.SimpleTest.test(SimpleTest.java:391) at webwork.util.ValueStack.test(ValueStack.java:129) at webwork.view.taglib.IfTag.doStartTag(IfTag.java:38) at org.apache.jsp.includes.panels.issue_005fheadertable_jsp._jspx_meth_webwork_if_1(issue_005fheadertable_jsp.java:757) at org.apache.jsp.includes.panels.issue_005fheadertable_jsp._jspService(issue_005fheadertable_jsp.java:176) at org.apache.jasper.runtime.HttpJspBase.service(HttpJspBase.java:97) at javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:802) {noformat} h3.

They all have a getParentIssue() method returning a GenericValue, but only the ViewIssue action has a getParentIssueObject() returning an Issue. It looks like <webwork:if> tag above is always evaluating to false because the method is missing, hence the <webwork:else> tag is always evaluated, including when the user does not have permission.
