    Description

      We've some jobs which do some generic tasks. On success they are used to trigger some downstream jobs. This is similar to JENKINS-25758, but its resolution didn't help. Downgrade to 1.620 fixed the problem.

      There are 2 downstream jobs configured. Starting with 1.621 only the first downstream job gets started after successful build, at best.

      Instead of triggering all the downstream jobs they fire this NPE:

      Warning: you have no plugins providing access control for builds, so falling back to legacy behavior of permitting any downstream builds to be triggered
