The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:

  1. Log into ODI as a user with no Supervisor privileges.
  2. Attempt to start a Debug session (right-click executable object, select Debug, and accept settings).
  3. Debug session starts, however, a popup window with the java.lang.NullPointerException error is shortly displayed.
