TAM0014E java.lang.NullPointerException when using ELEVATE with TICKET

Attempting to ELEVATE a user and specifying a Service Desk ticket results in the following error:

ACF60074 ELEVATE unsuccessful - ticket validation could not be performed

Turning on TRACE for the SJV log, re-starting the SJV task, and recreating the error resulted in the following error in the SJV log:

TAM0014E: Other error occured:. java.lang.NullPointerException


If SJVENV specifies SSL_ENABLED=FALSE, verify all lines in the TAMSTC SSL options section of the SJVENV dataset are commented out, then re-start the SJV started task. This should resolve the NullPointerException and allow the ELEVATE with a TICKET to occur.
