JSONDecodeError when calling UsersClient.get_user()


Hello - below is a snippet of my code which has been running fine for a long time, and randomly raised an error today. Does anyone know what caused it?

from flask_oids import OpenIDConnect
from okta import UsersClient
from flask import g

oidc = OpenIDConnect(app)
okta_client = UsersClient(…)

def before_request():
if oidc.user_loggedin:
g.user = okta_client.get_user(oidc.user_getfield(“sub”))
g.user = None

I’m on localhost. Here’s my error trace:

File “…\Python36-32\lib\site-packages\flask\app.py”, line 1997 , in __call__
return self.wsgi_app(environ, start_response)
File “…\Python36-32\lib\site-packages\flask\app.py”, line 1985 , in wsgi_app
response = self.handle_exception(e)

g.user = okta_client.get_user(oidc.user_getfield(“sub”))
File “…\Python36-32\lib\site-packages\okta\UsersClient.py”, line 44 , in get_user
response = ApiClient.get_path(self, ‘/{0}’.format(uid))

if self._check_response(resp, attempts):

.py", line 354 , in loads
return _default_decoder.decode(s)

File “…\Python36-32\lib\json\decoder.py”, line 357 , in raw_decode
raise JSONDecodeError(“Expecting value”, s, err.value) from None

Thanks for the help!
