2412765 - Add instructor fails


When we try to add an instructor in our LMS we receive an error message and the instructor is not saved.

We use a user with permission role ALL, so should not be a permission issue.


Learning Management System (LMS)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Learning > Instructors > Add New
  2. Fill all mandatory fields > save
  3. error: java.lang.NullPointerException: while trying to invoke the method java.lang.String.trim() of a null object returned from com.plateausystems.elms.client.struts.instructor.InstructorForm.getComponentID()
