Improved error messaging on the download tool

Hi there,


We often get the following error message from the download tool 

"00:00:23.555 - Error - ToolId 106: Error in libCURL: You have found a bug.  Replicate, then let us know.  We shall fix it soon."


Unfortunately this seems to be a transient error so we've not been able to replicate this in a useful & repeatable way.  However - we see this happening at least a few times per week on one of our servers, so this is a continuing issue.


Please could you provide more detailed error messaging on the download tool so that this error can be debugged and/or replicated?


Many thanks

Received the same largely unhelpful message on a process using Run Command, also with varying consistency in repeatability, so would love to extend this to tools with that message in addition to the Download tool!

Hi @SeanAdams , running into the exact same error, seemingly at random, also from the download tool. Do you have any more details on your use-case? Possible cause, maybe a solution?


Mine is in a batch macro where a download tool is retrieving urls from a Python tool that is running all the API-calls.

Hi I have same issue here. I'm using Download tool to run API Export Data Slice. Are there any updates?

No updates at the moment, but this is in the review cycle, and I will update the status when we hear back from product management on this idea. Thanks for the continued interest, we know the Download tool has room for improvement.
