Change Scripting API to return 'null' or 'None' value when a property is 'empty' instead of a 'Missing Property Exception'

Currently, when using the scripting API, if a property is 'empty' (i.e. when a build runs but does not have any source 'Issues' associated), then the API returns a Java 'Missing Property Exception'.
It would be nice to see the API complete in a more elegant manner - returning a 'null' or 'None' value instead of abending.

    Would it be possible to explain the details of the step in order to reproduce this issue using UI ?
    If it is purely reproducible using API in a script, would it be possible to share the script for analysis ?

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
