This afternoon I updated available plugins in a testing enviroment, which included the Jira Suite Utilities and found an error had occured when someone attempted to create an issue:
Error creating issue: An unknown exception occured executing Validator com.googlecode.jsu.workflow.validator.FieldsRequiredValidator@1f2ea0e1: root cause: java.lang.NullPointerException
This only occured when a ticket was created. There were 5 required fields to create. It will work with ALL of the ones on the list EXCEPT for Fix Versions.
The moment that Fix Versions is put back into the list the above error happens. I can have say Components, Summary, Description set to be required and it works.
As this is not a custom field I'm not sure what the issue would be and would appreciate any assistance?
The new 1.3.4 version did correct the problem for me. When I go back in and re-enable the Fix Versions requirement it no longer gives me that error.
If you're still having a problem with the validators, perhaps go into your workflow, remove them. Publish, then go back in and re-add them again and see if that fixes it up for you.
I can confirm if I add "Affects Versions" to my list of required feilds it gives me the error again.
The problem I was having was adding Fix Versions and the 1.3.4 update fixed that. So I think we may need another update to fix the "Affects Versions" and anything similiar to that.
