Appears to be same as the exception documented here - https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Unable+to+View+Screens+in+Project+Administration+Due+to+java.lang.NullPointerException

Can you try the resolution there?

Hi Robin,

Can you try to do the integrity checker and see if there's any inconsistency in database.

If it's no error found, please kindly ask your server admin to try the following to clean up caches/works to narrow down the problem:

  1. Shutdown your Jira
  2. Remove the following directories as they will rebuild when you restart jira
    • jira-home-path/plugins/.osgi-plugins
    • jira-home-path/plugins/.bundled-plugins
    • jira-home-path/caches/indexes
    • jira-installation-path/work
  3. Restart Jira
  4. Reindex Jira

Hope it helps Merry Xmas.

Regards,

John

Integrity checker fixed a small number of errors.

User confirms that the problem is still there, but the error is different - stack trace is below:

regards,

Robin
