I am getting a null pointer when transitioning an issue from one workflow state to the next. The next state has a validator that is "Only users with Resolve Issues permission can execute this transition." This user does not have those permissions.
The null pointer DOES prevent the transition, but I am expecting more information for the user such as "You don't have permissions" rather than a null pointer. Is this a bug or working as intended?
Depends! Do you have any workflow validators in the "Pass" transition? If so, that is a good place to start debugging. You will have to check the logs to find the issue without doubt.
Since you are on Atlassian Cloud, raise a support ticket with Atlassian to get the logs.
