Any idea how to resolve a NullPointerException on isDataCenter following an upgrade to 8.0.4?


I recently upgraded Bamboo from 7.0.4 to 8.0.4. The Bamboo service is failing to start with the following stack trace:

Anyone have an idea if I'm missing a configuration setting or similar issue?

Please contact support team at and provide Bamboo logs to receive more details about issue

Hey @Alexey Chystoprudov the support portal just takes me back to the community page (i.e. here) as I have a Starter License for this instance. Is there a better link, email contact, etc. where I can get support on this issue?

@Jeff Dexter please share full log here I'll look what could cause it
