    TokenException: Invalid 'CheckSum' being reported even for correct api key and secret. Kindly, resolve ASAP.

    Even I am facing the same issue. I just created new App on 22nd Feb 2021. App is not even saving Re-Generated secret and showing Server Error 500.

    @rakeshr Is there a problem with the API ? Getting TokenException:invalid checksum errors. Kindly, have it checked.
  • rakeshr
    This is fixed, you can try re-generating successful access_token now.
