My Zap had been functioning for 2 or so years without issue. Around 8 March it seems the authentication to my WP site was lost.

Attempts to re-authenticate failed ( until I deactivated the Pods plugin.

There hasn’t been any updates to WP Core or any plugins on my WP site for 2+ months. There’s been no update to the Zapier plugin for over a year, so nothing for me to update there. 

I successfully authenticated while Pods was deactivated. The authentication was lost when I reactivated the Pods plugin.

Example error log:

I’ve reviewed the docs here:

I’ve logged a ticket with Zapier also, but of course, they will claim it’s not their fault.

Hi @writerscentre, welcome to the Community!

I’ve checked a few resources on my end and I can’t see anything that relates to Pods. I can see that you’ve contacted the Zapier Support Team, they’ll be able to dive into your Zap logs to take a closer look at this with you. 

I’m sorry I don’t have any information to share with you at this stage.
