Script Runner condition throws exception


I having some trouble with the following workflow condition:

cfValues['class'].value != 'Smart'

The condition works great as long there is an value in the custom field "class", like smart, clever,..,

but if the custom field isn t filled (null) an exception is the result:

javax.script.ScriptException: java.lang.NullPointerException

Debbuging with assert says:

javax.script.ScriptException: java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot get property 'value' on null object

Does anybody know how to change the condition to avoid the exception?

Thanks, Benjamin

Try the following:

null != cfValues['class'] && cfValues['class'].value != 'Smart'

Updated, small error was inside)

The exception is gone! :)
