    • Jenkins 2.46.3, ssh-slaves 1.18

      Reproduction steps.

      1. Start Jenkins without installing any plugins
      2. Install an older ssh-slaves plugin (e.g. 1.14), this way there is no key verification strategy configuration. You'll need to also install ssh-credentials manually.
      3. Add an SSH-based agent.
      4. Upgrade to ssh-slaves 1.18 and restart the Jenkins instance.
      5. Note the following error in the agent log:
      ERROR: Unexpected error in launching a slave. This is probably a bug in Jenkins.

      [06/12/17 19:19:28] Launch failed - cleaning up connection
      [06/12/17 19:19:28] [SSH] Connection closed.

      To make sure this was specific to 1.18, I tested the upgrade from 1.14 to 1.17 and did not see a NullPointerException.
