Last updated on FEBRUARY 28, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Sourcing - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to review a negotiation, the following error occurs.

You have encountered an unexpected error. Please contact your System Administrator for assistance.

 1. java.lang.NullPointerException
 2. java.lang.NullPointerException
 3. java.lang.NullPointerException
 4. java.lang.NullPointerException
 ... and so on until:
 14. Solicitation XXX01-123X123456 has been saved as a draft

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Navigate in Sourcing:
   a. Create Solicitation > Add Contract Terms (or not) > Save as Draft
   b. Create Solicitation Amendment > Review > Save as Draft
   c. Negotiations > Advanced search > Click on the negotiation number hyperlink.
2. See the errors - a numbered sequence of java null pointer exceptions followed by the saved as a draft message

NOTE:  In the case of solicitation or amendments, regardless whether contract terms are attached or not, in the review page the error occurs when selecting "Save Draft".  This does not prevent the users from proceeding with the solicitation. The user can ignore the error messages and proceed with other actions.
