TB discover tool errors out with “no token”

I just tried to discover (luckily only 3) TBs through the tool, but it failed them all with “no token”. Maybe something with the Groundspeak API is hicupping again?

It sounds like your authentication between Project-GC and Geocaching.com expired with an unlucky timing.

The design from Groundspeak is that it lasts for 90 days. Project-GC checks that it's still valid at least every 8th hour. But a job like discovering trackables depends on it existing and being active. My guess is that it expired between Project-GC's last test and that you added the trackable job (or in the middle of the job).

The solution is to log out from Project-GC and authenticate again. Or wait until Project-GC throws you out because it realize the token isn't valid anymore, which should then happen within 8 hours.

Funny, PGC hasn’t logged me out yet, more than 8 hours later. I’ll try again once I have more TB codes to work on.
You can also force logout by clicking your username top right, and then logout.
I tried again: I was never forcefully logged out, but by logging out manually, then logging in, the TB discover tool works again.
