JIRA: Exception caught in 500 page null : java.lang.NullPointerException


I imported my buzilla database into JIRA and could not search on external id field after the import.
I was getting the following error in the logs:

java.lang.NullPointerException
        at com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.searchers.transformer.FreeTextCustomFieldSearchInputTransformer.validateParams(FreeTextCustomFieldSearchInputTransformer.java:60)

Step 1 was to remove the Freetext search from the External ID custom field.
I then added the freetext search back to the custom field.
I then reindexed and like magic my error went away.
