Business Process Script (BPS) Context Point: Null Pointer Exception

Business Process Script (BPS) Context Point: Null Pointer Exception


Scenario:

A new EXTOL Ruleset and new EXTOL Outbound Collaboration Business Process Script has been created. When the AARS (Application Analysis Ruleset) Launcher BPS is launched, we receive the error: unrecoverable error during the transformation step

Issue:

In the EXTOL Outbound Collaboration Business Process Script we are setting the value in a Context Point. The variable name value (glb.var.PNID_constant) does not match the actual variable name in the ruleset.
