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?


JIRA 6.4.14

    def (esmKey, value2) = esmKeyString.tokenize( '(' )

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.

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
