Why do I get IllegalArgumentException for rest api call in "enabled" lifecycle method

Recently we have released a new version of our cloud connect add-on and with that, we implemented some business logic in the "enabled" lifecycle method for backward compatibility support.  

This new code invokes a rest api call and retrieves some property values from user jira cloud instance databases.

The rest api call is being failed and return the following error in the event of upgrading already installed add-ons with the new version released.  But this error does not occur for fresh installation and api call returns successful response.

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The provided AtlassianHostUser did not specify a user to act as

Can you please provide us the source of the issue and possible resolution for it?

Additional information :

  • In our add-on descriptor, we have defined both "ADMIN" and "ACT_AS_USER" for add-on scopes.
  • We also have a private pre-review version of the add-on for testing purposes and we have tested the above functionality using it successfully. In that case, we always upgraded the add-on by providing the descriptor url using "Add-ons->Manage add-ons->Upload add-on"  button.

Thank you
