Automation Plugin says "Field 'type' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it." when editing a previosly working rule

Jens Kisters Jan 12, 2017

Hi everyone,

In the Automation Event log rules are failing because of a "com.atlassian.cache.CacheException".

When investigating this i noticed that when you edit a rule the formerly working JQL gets marked as invalid.

The error message is  "Field 'type' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it.".

But when you copy the JQL to the issue navigator (using the same JIRA user account of course) its working just fine.

Typing the JQL again and picking the field names from the type-ahead list doesn't help.

You can even reduce the jql to "type=bug" and the error occurs. Any field i tried is affected.

 

The JIRA log shows nothing (literally, there are no entries in the log for that time) regarding the com.atlassian.cache.CacheException

Any clues are appreciated!
