NetIQ Access Manager 3.2
NetIQ Access Manager 3.2 Support Pack 2
Policy APIs from NAM SDK used to create custom authorization policy
Policy APIs worked fine with 3.2.1 but broke in 3.2.2


After creating a custom authorization policy using the Policy APIs (of type Action Deny), the administrator created a new policy and tried to add this extension in the Actions section. As soon as this happened, an exception was thrown

-> java.lang.NullPointerException at org.apache.jsp.jsp.admin.policy.ruleeditAction_jsp._jspService(y:595)

It had initially been tested on an SP1 system where this was working fine. After making an upgrade to SP2 and trying to add the new policy, the above error exception was thrown.


Fixed in 3.2.2 IR1.
