Error description

  • when the application is being exported, it tries to find this
    User Role but it gets nothing back. When it then tries to get
    the name from the User Role object, it gets a
    NullPointerException.
    
    Steps to Reproduce:
    -------------------
    1)Create an Application with role included.
    2)remove the role from role configurations or make the role
    selected in application to some other value (some garbage)
    3)try to export the application.
    
    Null pointer should be avoided if it  does not find appropriate
    role in role configurations.
    

Local fix

  •  One of the Application process has random garbage value in the
    Required Role filed of process configuration.
    we have removed the value and saved the process configuration
    and could export the Application now.
