On OFSAA after a new installation, when attempting to navigate to the Financial Services screens the following error occurs when navigating to Application Preferences:

ERROR
java.lang.NullPointerException at
com.ofs.revelues.common.preference.action.ApplicationPreferenceAction.init

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Installed Oracle Financial Services Analytical Application Infrastructure successfully.
2. Installed Profitability Management 
3. Financial Services Applications -> Profitability Management -> Application Preferences

Also, instead of blue Oracle Page Header with Global Preferences link and Connected to: <Infodom> information, there is only a red ORACLE.
