Custom rest api is null Edited


I've created a custom rest API call that works well when run within the sdk


which yields

"optionsValues": [


However, when installed on my production server


  jira responds with

        <message>null for uri: http://jira/rest/custom/1.0/option/branch</message>

Nothing shows up in the jira log

These are my entry points

  • atlassian-plugin-xml
<rest key="customFieldOptionRESTpoint" path="/custom" version="1.0">
    <description>pick list custom fields</description>
  • class
public class CustomFieldOption {
    @Produces ({ MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON })
    public Response branchOption() {


What can be wrong, how can I track what's going on?

I had another custom/1.0 rest end point in a different plugin. Changing to 2.0 in my new plugin fixed the issue

Thanks Javier .. it fixed the similar issue for me.
