I don't know this app but the logs clearly say that you're trying to push HTTP request with no/wrong authentication.

Does anyone know how to determine the App/TA that is calling this?

 I had the Zscaler App and TA installed on my test instance and it was throwing an incredible # of errors.  I uninstalled both (zscalersplunkapp, TA-Zscaler_CIM) an these errors disappeared, but I'd like to know how to trace this to the caller instead of removing apps one by one.
