      Description

      Hi!

      We hare upgrading to Jira 4.4.1, and testing out the functionality.

      We have a cascading select, where I try to add "level 2"-options to the select list.
      I almost all the time get the following error:
      java.lang.NullPointerException
      at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.admin.customfields.AbstractEditConfigurationItemAction.getCustomField(AbstractEditConfigurationItemAction.java:37)
      at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.admin.customfields.EditCustomFieldOptions.doValidation(EditCustomFieldOptions.java:79)
      at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.admin.customfields.EditCustomFieldOptions.doAdd(EditCustomFieldOptions.java:176)
      at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)
      <.....>
      (For full stacktrace and error-page, se attachment)

      When pushing backspace to go back in browser history, and trying to add the field once more, it usually works.
      But this is very annoying, and slows down the time to udpate the select lists...

      Hope there is an answer to this.

      I also found this attachment when googling after the problem:
      https://jira.atlassian.com/secure/attachment/41846/edit+custom+field.txt

      Seems someone has had a similar problem...

      kindly regards,
      Stein
