The user is trying to join pyUserWorkList Report definition with work class properties. On the UI Screen, filters on pyUserWorkList columns are working fine but in case of blank values Null Pointer exception is being thrown on click filter icon for joined class properties/columns.
This is happening only in case of Blank values for joined table.
