This widget could not be displayed.

Looks like it is using a filter which is not visible to the user? You might want to raise a bug report but the immediate solution might be to share the filter with the user.

Thank you! That solved it.

@jobin: Is there any way to figure out which filters are causing this NPE to happen? I'd welcome even a MySQL DB query at this point.

Find the owner of the dashboard and check with him the details of filter used in the chart ;)

Heh... thanks... the log isn't very helpful though because I don't know who the owner of the dashboard is... I suppose I ought to ask in a separate question...

Are you not seeing this when you access a dashboard? If it is a shared board, you can find the owner under Administration > User Management > Shared Dashboards.

I have hundreds of dashboards (not all are shared either) and I do not know which one is causing the NPE to happen. The problem is further complicated in that I do not know which user is accessing which dashboard to cause this NPE.
