NullPointerException displays when importing the Product rule



NullPointerException displays when importing the Product rule.


    at ~[search.jar:?]

Steps to Reproduce

Attempt to import the Product rule.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. The log level is set to DEBUG for PegaSearch.Indexer.ESBulkIndexer. In the ESBulkIndexer, the bulk requestor object can be null, however, if debugging is enabled, a value is taken off of it before checking if it is null. This resulted in the exception.


Perform the following local-change:

Disable the DEBUG level logging on PegaSearch.Indexer.ESBulkIndexer.
