Project configurator plugin crashes when trying to export a 5.2.7 project

Hi,

We are trying to export some project configurations from 5.2.7 standalone (database from upgraded jira) into another 5.2.7 standalone instance (new database without projects).

The project configurator plugin throws this error when I click on project config export (project administration side bar):

 
Export failed!. javax.xml.bind.UnmarshalException - with linked exception: [org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; Premature end of file.]

Do you know what could be causing this issue?
 
Thanks,

This is from catalina.out

This is from catalina.out:

(Location of error unknown)java.lang.NullPointerException
SystemId Unknown; Line #84; Column #42; XML document structures must start and end within the same entity.
SystemId Unknown; Line #-1; Column #-1; Premature end of file.

The issue you are reporting happens when exporting a workflow, its likely cause being that some object (custom field, group, etc.) used by the workflow cannot be found. You should find extra information in the JIRA log.

Take into account that in the new version due for next week, we plan to add other improvements to error reporting during export:

- Context information, to show the step and object that triggered the error

- Clearer messages for errors found in workflow processing

We hope this will be a great help in cases like yours!

Hi Jose,

I think I found the issue and seems to be related with some missing plugins for custom fields at our original jira version 3.x.

I'll try removing the obsolete plugins first, then upgrade to jira latest and then try the plugin again.

Thanks for the help, we will try the upcoming plugin version for sure.
