Certain search criteria that use the sys_tag (such as sys_tag.=) will cause an exception.

Steps to Reproduce


  1. Activate the record watcher amb demo plugin.
  2. Navigate to rw_amb_demo.do.
  3. Add either sys_tag.= or sys_tag.=<sys_id> (replacing the sys_id with a sys_id) and change the table to incident.
  4. Change an incident.
  5. There is no update on the rw_amb_demo.do page.
  6. There is a stack trace that looks something like:
    at com.glide.record_watcher.async.SerializedElement.<init>(SerializedElement.java:25)
    at com.glide.record_watcher.RecordWatcherService.deserialize(RecordWatcherService.java:95)
    at com.glide.record_watcher.RecordWatcherService.enqueue(RecordWatcherService.java:55)
