Box add-on Errors

Explorer

Hi all,

I've read the troubleshooting page regarding Oauth session tokens (Can't post a link due to karma) and how they refresh every 2 hours, however I'm getting the following entries every 2/3mins (Not every 2hours as the troubleshooting guide states) Found by running the following search: eventtype=boxtalog_error

docs.splunk .com/Documentation/AddOns/released/Box/Troubleshooting#OAuthaccesstokenandrefreshtokenexpiration_behavior

As far as I can tell the add-on is configured correctly, and is receiving events, but these errors are a bit erroneous.

Hey@montydo,

This seems to be error of bad request.Could you confirm if you are sending request to correct url?

I followed that guide to the letter.

Which URL are you specifically talking about. The instructions guide you to the box developer page where I have created the box application successfully. I have also pasted the correct URI from splunk into the configuration of the app.

I could understand if this was the token timing out, but it's not every 2 hours, it's every 2 minutes and throwing an error to the splunk web interface under "Messages"

Re: Box add-on Errors

I'm actually getting the same errors. While I'm getting basic events, I'm not getting the folder, group, or user events. Any ideas?

Have you defined all the inputs on the add-on configuration page?

I have inputs for Events, Folders, Groups & Users, you need to configure each input separately and with the associated intervals.

Re: Box add-on Errors

I have, indeed. I'm kind of hoping it's a credential issue on the Box side, but there's not a lot to support that yet. Still looking into it.

I just received the same error.
Can someone let us know what this was fixed?
Did you have to authenticate again using your Box account?

Re: Box add-on Errors

After every change I make in the add-on, I have to re-add the client secret and then allow the app with the service account I am using with box.

This could happen even there is no change to the add-on, simply restarting splunk may resulting same problem. Keep re-adding the client secret/granting access on box is very annoying. I'm going to try the newly release 3.0.0 fixes. Hope it is fixed there.
