error: 'java.lang.NullPointerException - null' while creating custom field type in jira

I want to use following method for creation of custom field. But I am getting null pointer exception so I think the error is because of  FieldConfig fc=field.getRelevantConfig(issue); If this is correct then why I am getting that error and if not then can anyone help me because of which I am getting an error?


public class SelectCF extends GenericTextCFType



private final UserManager um;


private final JiraAuthenticationContext jac;


private final CustomFieldValuePersister customFieldValuePersister;


private final GenericConfigManager genericConfigManager;


private final TextFieldCharacterLengthValidator textFieldCharacterLengthValidator;


OptionsManager omm;


    public SelectCF(CustomFieldValuePersister customFieldValuePersister, GenericConfigManager genericConfigManager,JiraAuthenticationContext jac ,TextFieldCharacterLengthValidator textFieldCharacterLengthValidator,UserManager um ,OptionsManager omm)


    super(customFieldValuePersister, genericConfigManager,textFieldCharacterLengthValidator,jac);







public Map<String, Object> getVelocityParameters(final Issue issue,
final CustomField field,
final FieldLayoutItem fieldLayoutItem)
final Map<String, Object> map = super.getVelocityParameters(issue, field, fieldLayoutItem);

int num=0;
int num1=1;
FieldConfig fc=field.getRelevantConfig(issue);
Options options=ComponentAccessor.getComponent(Options.class);

Option op1=omm.createOption(fc, null, new Long(num), "Hello");
Option op2=omm.createOption(fc, null, new Long(num1), "World");

map.put("option1", "Hello");
map.put("option2", "World");

return map;
