            HI

            I'm facing the same problem. I'm not able to create new job as well.

            Is there any temporary solution to this ?

            It will be fixed in 1.494 but I'm not sure that JENKINS-15964 will be fixed.

            It appears that there is no relation to JENKINS-15964. Perhaps one of the plugin you have installed causes problem.
