I didn’t know you could do this: break the app using the backend API. 

Attempting to figure out the parameters to post an import job to the backend,
I got the JSON parameters wrong or incomplete, and now all I get from trying to 
GET /repository/$REPO/jobs?page=1 in the backend is:

  "error": "Had some trouble parsing your request: unexpected token at 'null'"

And accessing jobs in the frontend browser returns this page:

NoMethodError in Jobs#index

Showing /projects/Archivespace/1archivesspace/data/tmp/jetty- where line #25 raised:

undefined method `[]' for nil:NilClass

Extracted source (around line #25):

22:       <% end %>
24:       <h3><%= I18n.t("job._frontend.section.archived_jobs") %></h3>
25:       <% if @search_data['results'].length > 0 %>
26:         <%= render_aspace_partial :partial => "jobs/listing", :locals => {:jobs => @search_data['results']} %>
27:         <%= render_aspace_partial :partial => "shared/pagination" %>
28:       <% else %>

Rails.root: /projects/Archivespace/1archivesspace/data/tmp/jetty-

Application Trace <http://localhost:8088/jobs#> | Framework Trace <http://localhost:8088/jobs#> | Full Trace <http://localhost:8088/jobs#>
app/views/jobs/index.html.erb:25:in `_app_views_jobs_index_html_erb__573411897_16740'

Luckily, I was working on a test instance where I can blow away the database and start over if necessary.
But deleting the last row in the mysql ‘job’ table appears to have fixed it.
