Error retrieving a Domo API Access Token


I was running a python script that connects to Domo using my client id and secret and it was running fine till about an hour ago when I started getting an error message:

File "/.virtualenvs/strat/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pydomo/", line 87, in _renew_access_token

  raise Exception("Error retrieving a Domo API Access Token: " + response.text)

Exception: Error retrieving a Domo API Access Token: {"error":"invalid_client","error_description":"Invalid state of user ([my user id]) owning client: [my client id]"}

I reverted my script back to the last working version and I'm still getting this message.

I've tried using a new client id and secret.

I've tried resetting my local environment.

None of this worked.

Any ideas?

    Same issue here... Working fine for months across multiple systems and broken this morning.

    Wondering if this will escalate due to domo connectors using client auth

  • AaronSinclair

    Did your organization enable MFA recently by any chance?

    @user005412 we've had MFA for a long time, so I don't believe anything changed there.

    Looks like DOMO is working on this issue. I am getting token auth back on some requests now.

    Auth API Response is varied including

    {"status":500,"statusReason":"Internal Server Error","message":"Internal Server Error","toe":"xxxxxx-xxxx-xxxxx"}

    Domo was having some connectivity issues yesterday which were impacting some of my API scripting but it appears to have been resolved now.

    Hi There,

    We are getting similar error. May I know how do you pass Client ID and Secret in Postman.
