I’m seeing a weird issue on my Chat GPT Zaps. The error is:

Step 8. Conversation With Assistant in ChatGPT

This ChatGPT step hit an error.

Error message: The app returned "Unsupported content type: 'application/json; charset=utf-8'. This API method only accepts 'application/json' requests, but you specified the header 'Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8'. Ple...". Unsupported content type: 'appl

This error occurred on all my GPT Zaps this morning. I have tasks that have ran flawlessly daily for months. Even the test in is working well.

Now, no Chat GPT Assistants appears in the drop down. Looks like that’s where the issue is — the Zap is trying to call Assistants but none exist. I have my Open AI accounting with Assistants testing fine in the other tab.

Did Zapier lose connection to Chat GPT Assistants?

Hi @rjx,

Thank you so much for this valuable feedback, this is how we build and grow Zapier! I've submitted it to our internal database, which our product teams use when looking to make improvements and changes to Zapier. 

Hopefully, this helps!

I wish the troubleshoot feature within Zapier (beta?) would look into the status of related services, so it is easier to do a root-cause analysis...

Hi @jbtx and @rjx,

There seems to be an issue in OpenAI’s end as per https://status.openai.com/. I suggest to keep an eye on this link. Though it is not indicated as resolved yet, on my testing, it seems operational already.

Hopefully, this helps!

It seems that how Zapier calls ChatGPT changed … getting a slew of errors suddenly.
