O365 Secret Key expiration doesn't generate expected return code


I just ran into an issue where the O365 app created for log collection had it's Secret Key expire. According to there should be a 401 or 500 error generated. But in fact, what is generated it an unhandled exception (running Add-on for O365 2.0.0, but no reason that it would be fixed in current 2.0.3 version):

I already added the comment to the documentation and they suggested I post it here as well. For now, I have an ugly alert/query in case this happens again:

index=_internal sourcetype="splunk:ta:o365:log" "Data input was interrupted by an unhandled exception." "File \"/opt/splunk/etc/apps/splunk_ta_o365/bin/splunk_ta_o365/common/\", line 31, in __init__" "TypeError: string indices must be integers"


I'm also sending a suggestion to MS to add events in the logs for "secret is expiring in X days".

I also meant to mention that I'm using the same AppID for collecting AzureAD & Graph SecurityAPI logs.

Both of those continued to work for at least 10 days after O365 collector stopped working (SURPRISE!!).

No idea why these continued to work, even after *rebooting* my Heavy Forwarder.
