I created a custom action, followed all steps mentioned in https://doc.sitecore.com/en/developers/93/sitecore-experience-platform/create-an-activity-type.html

i can see my custom action in the marketing editor, but when i try to save it, it throws 500 error.

this is the response error: { "message": "An error has occurred.", "exceptionMessage": "Object reference not set to an instance of an object.", "exceptionType": "System.NullReferenceException",

By looking at the error in the screenshot HTTP failure response for http://localhost:44001/sitecore/api/ma/plans/?CultureName=en: 500 Internal Server Error, it seems like the sitecore language cookie is set to some other language and marketing automation API is trying to fetch all plans items in default language en. You can try clearing your cookies and cache of the browser or open the Sitecore marketing automation module in an incognito (private) window.
