DemistoException: Failed to parse json object from response

L1 Bithead

I'm making a request in an integration to an external API

        return self._http_request(
            'POST','export/download',
            headers={'accept': "application/octet-stream",
                     'content-type': "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"},
            data=payload)

and I get back a data stream - it's looks like it should be a JSON array, but is actually not, it's simply a long list of separate JSON objects, e.g.

{"id":1}
{"id":2}
{"id":3}

so I get the error

   File "<string>", line 66, in export_download
   File "<string>", line 9423, in _http_request
   File "<string>", line 9527, in _handle_success
   File "<string>", line 9545, in cast_response
 DemistoException: Failed to parse json object from response: b'{"id":"aaaaa","bd.hostname":"host1.bla"}\n{"id":"bbbbb","bd.hostname":"host2.bla"}\n

and so on...

How do I stop Demisto thinking this is a JSON object. - Line 66 is the one shown

After much digging, I found you need to set resp_type on the request - not sure why there is no simple documentation on the class, but just needed to add the following to the request

 

resp_type='text'

Had to eventually find the option here
