Errors seen after setup of Splunk App for Dropbox

I recently setup the Splunk App for Dropbox on a HF in our environment.
I saved the Oauth token and configured the index as needed on my indexer cluster.
I am seeing this error in the _internal logs for that app though and no data is being populated.

10-17-2019 12:41:50.271 -0500 ERROR ExecProcessor - message from "python /opt/splunk/etc/apps/splunk-app-dropbox/bin/dfb.py" ValueError: No JSON object could be decoded

Any suggestions to resolve?

Thanks for the advice @gaurav_maniar. It spurred a thought process to check our proxy.

It was blocking the calls to the Dropbox API. Everything is working now, thanks!

Hi,

Please share more error logs from the script.

The JSON error means, somewhere in the script dfb.py its is not able parse a variable as JSON or is not having JSON data.
Most probably, it is not able to connect to your dropbox or it's not able to authenticate.
