Taboola Campaign Duplication: Campaign duplicated after API returned 401 unauthorized

We are using the backstage api to create campaigns via duplication. We faced an instance where Taboola returned 401 Unauthorized for a request but still created the campaign at their end. It was thankfully detected but this is a very dangerous situation. Allowing campaigns to be created after returning FAILED status to end user can cause spends to be incurred. Please investigate and fix the issue on priority.
