I am getting an error "Value cannot be null. Parameter name:input" (See attached screen shot) when opening a project. I used source control to find the problem was the settings.aiis. I attach both the working one and the failing settings file. I would like to know what value is null so I can fix it? I am using the open source Jira Plugin but it was working fine.

Hi Mark,

The non-working one has the saved JIRA settings:
"BugTrackerPersistableSettings" : {
    "JIRA" : {
        "RootName" : "JiraConnectionModel",
        "ServerName" : "http://jira.nndsonline.org",
        "User" : "mstiles",
        "Password" : {
            "Length" : 12,
            "Base64value" : "U3VtbWVyMTIh"
        },
        "SelectedProject" : {
            "self" : "http://jira.nndsonline.org/rest/api/2/project/POLPCMS",
            "id" : 10061,
            "key" : "POLPCMS",
            "name" : "Parnassus CMS",
            "avatarUrls" : {
            }
        },
        "ProjectName" : "Parnassus CMS",
        "CurrentVersion" : "2013.2.1327.0",
        "XmlBlob" : null
    }
},

While the working one does not:
"BugTrackerPersistableSettings" : {},

You state "it was working fine". What changed between working and not working? Did you upgrade Test Studio. The JIRA bug tracking plugin is Test Studio version specific. If you upgrade Test Studio you must recompile the plugin and use the new DLL.

Cody,

 I tried recompiling the dll and config file. I then open TS and added the bug tracking and was able to submit a bug to Jira.I was able to run tests in TS. If I close the project and reopen the project I then get the error. I am new to TS So I got screenshot of me adding the bug tracking to TS maybe there is something with the setup that is kill the project. I also included the dll and config file.

Thanks for the help so far,
Mark

Hello Mark,

I am getting the same thing. Something has changed in Test Studio that is breaking the Jira code. I am on contact with our development team to figure out how to fix this. Standby and I'll update you when I have a solution ready for you.

Hello,

I just wanted to let you know we're still working on this. We thought we had it solved yesterday, but after more testing we ran into another problem.

Thanks guys, I'll keep an eye on this. I've extended the Jira plugin to add a default assigned user and labels and thought my code broke it until I found this! 

I'll wait for the update... :)

Hello Deon,

I checked in a couple of fixes into the repository over the weekend. It's better now, but not perfect. Please discard any saved settings. The Jira settings are stored in the settings.aiis files. They were not being serialized correctly and cannot be fixed. Only re-creating the settings will fix the re-load problem.

The bug we're working on right now is that the saved settings aren't loaded properly the first time you open the test project. If you close it and open it again (w/o shutting down Test Studio) the saved settings will then be loaded. As soon as you shut down Test Studio you will have to open your project twice to reload the settings.

Hopefully this will be good enough to unblock you.

Cody

Hi Deon,

Here's our status. We found a fixed a bug in Test Studio that would affect all bug tracker plug-ins. We're planning on creating a custom build of Test Studio on Monday. I'll post a link to the download location when it's available. You should then be able to start using the JIRA plug-in.

Also note I checked in more UI fixes today. There are still two minor UI bugs left. They are documented in the repository.

Cody

Hi Deon,

We finally got all the bugs worked out and a release ready for public consumption. You must download and install a custom build of Test Studio. It contains bug fixes to regressions that affected all bug tracker plug-ins. Here are the links:

Test Studio Ultimate 2014.1.421

I also added pre-built binaries for this version of Test Studio to the GitHub repository.
