When any user opens any Kanban Board, the user gets error "java.lang.NullPointerException"

Also, workcenter.log gives error:
ERROR 02-03-2023 15:15:17 [MenuItemServiceImpl] -- Error during fetching Kanban default mapping from AE  
    at com.serena.workcenter.service.MenuItemServiceImpl.copyMenuItemForApplicationGroupRecursively(

This will happen if any Kanban is using a feed which filters on a sub-relational field containing "(None)", and the Kanban finds one or more records where this is true.
