Errors seen after setup of Splunk App for Dropbox

Builder

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!

I have converted my comment as answer.
It would be great if you can accept my answer and up-vote it.

happy splunking......!!!

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.
