The description is a bit confusing...

Usually, "container.generator.getToken" would *never* raise
a "KeyError, non-existent 'generator.getToken'".

Please look at the traceback. It tells you where (precisely) the
exception is raised. Almost surely, it does not come from where
you expect (now).

If necessary, come back with the traceback, the *precise* (!)
"Error Type" and "Error Value" and the code identified by
the last line of the traceback.
