Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • When using hasUser on the TeamScriptable or isInRole on the
    UserScriptable this can lead to a NullPointerException, if the
    user/role does not exist.
    
    If the user/role can not be retrieved by BPM this
    NullPointerException can occur, because the code in the
    JavaScript API does not expect the result to be null.
    

Problem conclusion

  • With this interim fix the JavaScript API will be fixed so that
    the two functions on the two scriptables can deal with null
    values.
