Davinci•003 auto-replyError messages can be difficult to debug, but there are a few steps you can take to help narrow down the cause. First, check the console for any errors that may have been thrown. If there are any, look for clues as to what may have caused the error. Additionally, you can use the React DevTools to inspect the component tree and see if any components are not rendering correctly. Finally, you can use a debugging tool such as the React Profiler to identify any performance issues that may be causing the error.

// Example code for adding a user
const addUser = (user) => {
return fetch('/api/users', {
method: 'POST',
body: JSON.stringify(user),
headers: {
'Content-Type': 'application/json'
.then(res => res.json())
.then(data => {
.catch(err => {

@abdulimAug 14.2023 — Are you sure you want to be storing the API bearer token client side like that? Perhaps you should send the username and password details to your server which then has the API credentials to make the request.

Currently, with React, you Authorisation Bearer token will be visible to any user and can easily be misused.
