ScriptRunner error in custom email listener

When executing a custom email listener listener the below error is displayed in the logs and the email is never sent. When I run the preview function, the email is generated correctly. I attempted to put logging statements in the templates but the import statements generated errors. Ho can I go about debugging this?

Versions

JIRA 6.4.14

ScriptRunner 4.1.3.24

Email Template

Your request <A href="$baseurl/browse/$issue">$issue</A> has been submitted successfully. The aligned ESM <%
    String esmKeyString = issue.getCustomFieldValue(componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("ESM's Name"));
    def (esmKey, value2) = esmKeyString.tokenize( '(' )
    def esmName = componentManager.getUserUtil().getUserByKey(esmKey).getDisplayName()
    out << esmName;
%> will be contacting you shortly.

Subject template

Issue $issue: A <%
    String companyName = issue.getCustomFieldValue(componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Company Name"));
    out << companyName;
%> request has been submitted successfully

You'd be better off putting this in the configuration so you can inject it in as a variable, and handle null as you wish.

https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/latest/jira/builtin-scripts.html#_additional_configuration_in_emails

Main trouble is that variable "esmKeyString" is null. Since NullPointerExeption is raised.

It is null because there is no value for customfiled "ESM's Name"

There are two options to do

  1. make this field mandatory
  2. add try/catch block for NullPointerExeption
