[Cloud Control 12c] Discovery EBS R12 fails with java.lang.NullPointerException

Trying to discover an EBS System with Cloud Control, discovery ends on error:

java.lang.NullPointerException
oracle.apps.fnd.oam.em.util.job.CommandException
Caused By: oracle.apps.fnd.oam.em.sdk.targetData.discovery.AppsDiscoveryException: Error while attempting to discover EBS on : 0000( oracle_database ) using schema: em_monitor
Caused By: java.lang.NullPointerException

This error appears in the Discovery Job Run page. (Enterprise > Job Activiy > Job Run DISCOVERY <instance> [Date])

At first look, it seems like is a missing plug-in, so, according to "Troubleshooting Oracle E-Business Plug-in 12.1.0.1 [ID 1537431.1]", Step 2, yo need to check if you have all the necessary plug-in installed on the agent, that EBS System requires to work.
