Category:Custom fields
Target version:4.2.0
Resolution: Affected version:4.1.1


When editing the list of possible values for a key/value custom field type, clicking "Add" with the field empty will lead to a HTTP 500 error from Redmine. An example stack trace is attached. The error is confirmed on current master.

It should at least be fixed that Redmine does not create an HTTP 500 error, an error message that the value must not be empty would be better.
