Hi @David Montplaisir

 

Thank you for reporting this issue. I think it might be related with the bug in one of the libraries we are using in Crowd https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WW-4869

Is there a chance that you are running this on Java9? If so, please note that according to Crowd documentation Java9 is not yet supported.

 

Hope that helps,

Marcin Kempa
