Just found, this is a confirmed bug:

  • https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/browse/STP-158

Just so we can rule them out - what's the OS, version of Jira and version of Java? Be useful to know what plugins you have too.

Ah, ok. I remember breaking it with a custom field plugin once, but it was a while ago :-)

Don't worry about other plugins, I think is simply an older bug in the Support Tools Plugin. I say this because I wrote the code that introduce the bug, and remember seeing the error and fixing it... :)

Hi, Thomas:

Which version of JIRA are you using? I'd like to know so that I can verify the problem and enter it in our bug tracking.

Regardless, the solution is likely to upgrade to the latest version from the plugins section of the administrative interface. Please try that and let me know how it goes.

Thanks,

Tony
