I extended the bulk edit process with a plugin for JIRA. For JIRA 4.4 it compiled and worked fine. Now I compiled this plugin for JIRA 5.2.1 and get a runtime error (even if I comment out all changes in bulk edit in atlassian-plugin.xml) :
2012-12-11 15:33:01,062 http-bio-8080-exec-5 ERROR myName 933x5313x3 12o0zcy 127.0.0.1 /issues/ [velocity] Left side ($totalSize) of '<' operation has null value at templates/plugins/jira/macros.vm[line 8, column 18]
What can I do? I found an open JIRA issue with a similar headline. https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-30554
You will have to upgrade to JIRA 5.2.5 (which will hopefully be coming out in a week or two), or wait for OnDemand to be upgraded to 6.0-OD5, this issue is present in 5.2.1 and will be fixed when the new versions are released.
The error shouldn't affect anything too much, in the bug ticket as well Eric states
This is a benign message - you don't need to worry too much about it. It is caused by a template using the macro incorrectly. One cause of this is a plugin passing a null into the macro. If you're seeing this issue or one like it and you are using a custom plugin, it's possible it is caused by that.
