Scriptrunner 'switch to a different user' fails

On JIRA Software 7.2.2 (and Service Desk 3.2.2), Scriptrunner 4.3.7.

When trying the build in script - Switch to a different user, the script throws an exception:

java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot invoke method getRemoteUserKey() on null object

Anybody that have seen this before?

We have just upgraded to the new JIRA and scriptrunner versions.

This is a bug in 4.3.7 unfortunately. Please see SRJIRA-2040.

We are looking at fixing this as soon as possible and putting out a new release.

For now you can downgrade to 4.3.6 if this is a problem for you.

This has been fixed in 4.3.8 and has been released, or 4.1.3.18 for JIRA 6.
