Splunk Add-on for Nessus: Why am I getting error "NessusConfigException: Cannot get the encrypted keys."?

I am getting this error while trying to integrate Nessus logs with Splunk:

2016-05-13 04:55:06,583 ERROR pid=9133 tid=MainThread file=nessus.py:get_nessus_modinput_configs:157 | Traceback (most recent call last):   File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_nessus/bin/nessus.py", line 147, in get_nessus_modinput_configs
    input_conf = config.get_data_input(input_name)
  File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_nessus/bin/nessus_config.py", line 186, in get_data_input
    check_conf_mgr_result(False, "Cannot get the encrypted keys.")
  File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_nessus/bin/nessus_config.py", line 27, in check_conf_mgr_result
    raise NessusConfigException(msg)
NessusConfigException: Cannot get the encrypted keys.

Any idea how to resolve it?

Already fixed, the issue was with API keys. I had to redo it and it worked.

The error is suggesting that maybe you havent put your nessus api keys in the conf file for the app. Is this a first time install or upgrade?

Already fixed, the issue got fixed after redoing it again. I had to generate new API keys and re-entered them again. It worked this time.
