Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Administrator work center.
  2. Go to the Service and Social view.
  3. Open Social Media Channels.
  4. Select Facebook/Twitter channel.
  5. Open different logs of the channel.
  6. In some logs you find error message: 'The external service provider 'The external service provider 'XYZ' reported the following error: 400:message#(#2) Service temporarily unavailable#type#"OAuthException","is_transient"true,"code"2,"fbtrace_id""XXYYZZAABBCC"'.'.


The error message is triggered by Facebook/Twitter to indicate that the API service is temporarily not available.


The import runs will import all the messages/posts once the Social Media (Facebook/Twitter) API service is available.
