Cannot set property 'billingHandler' of null

My userSignupWithPassword mutation broke today with the following error:

locations: [{line: 2, column: 3}]
message: "Cannot set property 'billingHandler' of null"
path: ["userSignUpWithPassword"]

Can anyone help explain what that means? I don’t have any variables named “billingHandler”, I don’t have any fields in any table called “billingHandler”. Why would it be trying to set this anywhere?

The only thing I can think of is I do have a Create.trigger before on my User table to create a Stripe Customer & Subscription.

But I haven’t changed that code since it was working, There’s no mention of “billingHandler” in there, and lastly when I signup a user this function runs correctly, creates a Stripe Customer and subscription and ends without errors.

Does anyone know what this “billingHandler” is?

This comes back as a “GraphQL error” and a User is never created in my table.

Here’s what. my Graphql Quey looks like:

  mutation userSignUpWithPassword(
    $email: String!
    $billingInterval: String!
    $password: String!
    $firstName: String!
    $lastName: String!
    $stripeToken: JSON!
  ) {
      authProfileId: "XXXXXXXXXX"
      password: $password
      user: {
        email: $email
        billingInterval: $billingInterval
        firstName: $firstName
        lastName: $lastName
        stripe: { create: { token: $stripeToken } }
    ) {


I Completely. removed the Trigger.before for my Stripe customer creation and this STILL fails with the same error :scream:

That means it’s an issue with the userSignUpWithPassword mutation.

@MarkLyck should be fixed now
