Hi there,

Can you give us a few details regarding how you came to this error? 

  • What were you doing when you received it?
  • What version of Jira are you running?
  • Did you recently perform an upgrade?

It also appears that we're missing a few details about the actual problem. There should be an error message somewhere besides the stack trace you've sent. This will include also information that says caused by to give us further details.

You tail the application logs and trigger the error again and let us know what message you receive.

Regards,

Shannon

Hello,

i am facing a similar problem today after performing an upgrade from Jira 7.9.1 to 7.10.2.

The error occurs trying to access Jira via a browser after the upgrades Jira service restart.

The startup process (plugins etc.) is viewable in the browser.

 

I am using a nginx https frontend server.

 

This the catalina.out extract:
