Error Message :

This bug happens only when using RA Agents that have a connection Object in the Job definition (e.g. the Avaloq Agent) and some values from the Connection Object are missing.

You will get a null password given error sporadically, it does not happen very frequently.

What happens in Detail is this:

ExecuteJob.runJob(com.uc4.extensibility.types.CITAgent agentRef,
com.uc4.extensibility.iface.ICITServerFunctions serverCom,
com.uc4.extensibility.container.LaunchData launchData,
java.util.Map prompts,
com.uc4.extensibility.objs.ConnectionsData conData )):
calls the following line:
jdbcCon = getConnection(conData.getConnectionData ('AVConnectionValue'))
conData.getConnectionData ('AVConnectionValue') returns:
loginIDValue: null => Even if it is set


Cause type:
Root Cause: This can occur when there is an incomplete connection object (some values are missing). The problem happens very infrequently and is a very sporadic error.
