[okapya.jira.customfields.ChecklistReadOnlyCFType] Invalid customfield with ID: null

We use the CheckList plugin for a while now, but I see tons of error messages in the JIRA log:

[okapya.jira.customfields.ChecklistReadOnlyCFType] Invalid customfield with ID: null

[okapya.jira.customfields.ChecklistReadOnlyCFType] Invalid customfield. Could not get value from issue

What could be the cause of this?

Hi Mariska,

What version of Checklist are you using? Can you also tell me which version of JIRA?

From the error message, I guess that you have also setup checklist to work with JIRA Agile?




We've got v 2.01. But I think I've tackled it. I had 2 proxy fields for usage on the Agile board, but they were not initialised with a default value. After I deleted those fields and recreated them with the default value to the particular checklist field, I didn't see the errors in the log any more.

For me, it would have helped to get the name of the checklist field in the logging or an error on the agile board.



Thanks Mariska,

I will take note of this.

We are seeing the same problem.  How do I figure out what is causing it?

they are constant and my log is full of them.

Hi Marlene,

You need to go to your customfield configuration page in the admin section and check for the "Checklist Read-Only Proxy" field(s). Go to their configuration page and select default value: make sure that you select a valid customfield from the pulldown.

However, if you get that message, I guess that the customfield is not really in use so you probably can delete it.

I see a field that is of type checklist.  this is the config for the default value/s

what should I change?


I found the culprit!  and you were right. it isn't being used.  I deleted it.

thank you!
