Error in Automation Plugin

We just started to use Automation plugin and created a rule that should act on created issues. If a certain value is set it should be transitioned to a specific status. This does not work, instead we get an error.

Which version of ATM plugin are you using?

Version 1.5.3 - latest version.

I've just published 1.5.4. Can you try that one and post stacktrace if possible? Probably you should move this to https://bitbucket.org/atlassianlabs/automation/issues

Thanks! I will have the sysadmin do this asap and get back to you.
