Hello, when attempting to create a release for a specific project, the UI, cmd line and API all get the error “Object reference not set to an instance of an object.” We are on Octopus version 2020.5.8. I upgrade from 2020.4.2 just over 24 hours ago. Yesterday, we didn’t notice any problems. But for the project in question, the last release created was yesterday afternoon. More than 8 hours after the upgrade.
We have discovered some additional information. There is an “Upgrade a Helm Chart” in the project’s deployment process. We use this process step a lot and its working in other cases and also in this same project. But when this instance of the process step is disabled, release creation works.
Well, I found the problem. The developer who created the process step, did not set it up correctly. Once the correct parameters values and selections were made, everything is working.
BUT, please can you file a bug on this process step. Showing an error message of “Object reference not set to an instance of an object.” is very distressing in a production deployment context. Thanks!
