      Description

      Using Jenkins 2.60.3, I see a null pointer exception when trying to save a parameterized job which has no parameters defined.

      Steps I take:

      1. Create a new freestyle job
      2. Click the checkbox "This job is parameterized"
      3. Click the "Save" button

      Work arounds:

      1. Add a parameter to the job
      2. Uncheck the checkbox for "This job is parameterized"
