What is "Pending promotion (promotion not queued. Please re-execute promotion)" ?
I have set up a job, with Manually Approved promotion, that sends an Editable Email Notification and builds another project upon Promotion. I then did a few builds. When I go to the /server:8080/job/my-job/42/promotion/? page and click the Approve button, I see the message "Pending promotion (promotion queued)". When I refresh the page, then I see "Pending promotion (promotion not queued. Please re-execute promotion)". The email never gets sent and the other job does not get kicked off. I don't see any errors in the system log. Any ideas ?
I've got a similar problem. I've downgraded to 1.11 for the time being, but the logs for the promotion are typically in the main hudson directory under jobs%JobName%\promotions%promotionName%\builds%BuildTimestamp%\
For this error the only thing I'm seeing in the logs is:
Though there is a long line of characters before the null pointer exception. As far as I can see, it looks like one of the targets where it creates the URL is failing, but I'm really not sure. I'm trying to play around with it a bit more before putting in the ticket, but if anyone has more info, please feel free to share.
