Hi there,

I suspect the problem is due of corrupted file happen in JIRA Home Directory. Please rebuild the cache by performing the following steps:

  1. Shutdown *JIRA* instance
  2. Delete the contents of {{JIRA Installation Directory\work}} directory
  3. Delete contents of the {{JIRA Home Directory\caches\indexes\changes}} directory
  4. Delete contents of the {{JIRA Home Directory\caches\indexes\comments}} directory
  5. Delete contents of the {{JIRA Home Directory\caches\indexes\entities}} directory
  6. Delete contents of the {{JIRA Home Directory\caches\indexes\issues}} directory
  7. Remove the content of the following directory:
    • <JIRA_HOME>/plugins/.bundled-plugins
    • <JIRA_HOME>/plugins/.osgi-plugins
  8. Restart *JIRA* instance.
  9. Perform re-indexing
  10. Perform the integrity checker.

Hope it helps. Regards,

John Chin

That did not work for me, running JIRA 4.4.5.

Hi Shruti-

I'm seeing a similar issue when filtering with all filters removed and "ORDER BY resolution DESC" in the advanced filter.

Have you ever heard of a resolution?

Thanks,

Rob
