Does the JIRA Toolkit Plugin version 0.24 work with jira 5.1.2?

The plugin's compatibility matrix isn't very clear on the subject. It appears it should be compatible, but I am receiving an error for any "Edit" screen containg a Velocity processed Message Custom Field (for edit) field. There is a Critical Bug filed against the project from August 8th 2012, however, Atlassian hasn't responded.

Has anyone else encountered this? If so, how did you resolve the problem?

Error (I have the entire error is anyone wants to see it):

com.atlassian.jira.util.dbc.Assertions$NullArgumentException: one should not be null! at com.atlassian.jira.util.dbc.Assertions.notNull(

The short answer is nearly :-)

The Velocity custom fiields don't work because of a bug I've just raised - see

I'm trying to see if I can make a workaround somehow that doesn't rely on a core JIRA fix...

As are we. Atlassian said they are unlikely to work on it as it's a version behind.

The issue was first raised 8/8/12:

Hopefully we'll find a solution soon. We are rather excited about some of the performance enhancements in 5.1.x.

Bug fixed in Jira 5.1.8

Hi Paul,

There's no information on the Marketplace for this specific version. But you can use the Toolkit 0.25 on JIRA 5.1.2 without problems.

Thanks Pedro.

Unfortunately, we are using the velocity fields which were removed from 0.25 due to security reasons. It looks like we'll have to post-pone the upgrade until we can switch the JS to our own plug-in as we haven't found another one with the proper functionality.
