issue collector Uncaught exception thrown by REST service

We have a few different issue collectors.  All were working great up until a couple weeks ago.  Now one of them is throwing an error.  (The other two are fine.) Issues are not getting created.

The log error is below.  If the user is not logged in to JIRA they see this: 

AJAX error thrown: SyntaxError: Unexpected token <

If the user is logged in to JIRA they see this:

AJAX error thrown: SyntaxError: JSON.parse: unexpected character at line 1 column 1 of the JSON data

 

Finally, the last oddity is that one person on our team encounters no errors with this issue collector.  But it isn't working for anyone else.

Found it.  Removed this validator and all was well:

 

 The field Project Key its contents must match against the regular expression [A-Z_0-9]+
