  • 500 error when accesing from browser but server starts succesfully with could-not-find-a-field-type-definition-with-name-h2-in-atlassian error in log

500 error when accesing from browser but server starts succesfully with could-not-find-a-field-type-definition-with-name-h2-in-atlassian error in log

I am getting java.lang.NullPointerException com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.JiraFirstFilter.wrap when starting JIRA with 500 error and in the logs it says com.google.common.util.concurrent.UncheckedExecutionException: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Could not find a field-type definition with name "h2"

Configuration I have

 java -version

java version "1.8.0_65" 


atlas-version

ATLAS Version: 6.2.2 ATLAS Home: /usr/share/atlassian-plugin-sdk-6.2.2

ATLAS Scripts: /usr/share/atlassian-plugin-sdk-6.2.2/bin

ATLAS Maven Home: /usr/share/atlassian-plugin-sdk-6.2.2/apache-maven-3.2.1 AMPS Version: 6.2.1

This problem is not letting me start JIRA in dev env.

Command I am using to start JIRA

atlas-run-standalone --container tomcat7x --product jira --version 7.1.0-OD-03-049 --data-version 7.1.0-OD-03-049 --bundled-plugins com.atlassian.bundles:json-schema-validator-atlassian-bundle:1.0.4,com.atlassian.upm:atlassian-universal-plugin-manager-plugin:2.20.1-D20150924T170115,com.atlassian.jwt:jwt-plugin:1.5.4,com.atlassian.plugins:atlassian-connect-plugin:1.1.66 --jvmargs -Datlassian.upm.on.demand=true

I have the same error after upgrading to sdk 6.2.2 and see this:

[INFO] determining latest stable product version...
[INFO] using latest stable product version: 6.4.3

Simply using an older version of the sdk fixes the problem. 

Version 6.2.2 does not honor the --version argument and seems to decide on its own to fetch version 6.4.3

I've just got the same result. I think you've cracked it! I can't see a simple workaround on that at the moment, looks like a bug to me.

Great find Gert-Jan van de Streek, both the 6.x versions are not working. Moving to 5.1.10 removed the problem.

Is this error fixed as it seems atlas-run-cloud --application jira-software is only available with 6.2.2

That error usually happens when there's an incompatible version of JAVA in use.  In this case, you look like you are running the right versions, but you do need to check the process - when it's starting and failing, can you use a "ps -ef" to show that it's definitely running /usr/lib/jvm/java1.8/bin/java and not a left over 1.7?   (Just because your command line would naturally run java 1.8 correctly, does not mean the SDK will...)

Thanks Nic, I tried ps ax | grep java 2145 ?
