  2. Monitor jobs

  3. Open "Sync all external job postings".

  4. Job fails with error message-
    Full exception:com.successfactors.jobscheduler.ScheduledJobExecutionException: java.lang.NullPointerException: while trying to invoke the method java.util.Collection.toArray() of a null object loaded from local variable 'c'


No Valid job requisition is been posted externally or the posted jobs externally have expired .



When the "Sync all external posting job" fails with the error " null object loaded from local variable c" , it points to the fact that the instance
