The Project argument and its backing generic value must not be null

Hi,

This is a Jira instance specific issue. All the projects seem to be affected by this. Jira Adminstrators are not facing this issue. If you are not a Jira Administrator and only a Project Administrator, then are getting below error when trying to access "Permissions" tab, "Issue Security" tab or "Notifications" tab from Project Administration page.

You might have an invalid project row in the database. Have a look at the project table and compare it with the projects you have.

Thanks Jobin,

We had some bad record NODEASSOCIATION table. When we deleted that data. The problem got resolved.
