Axios Promise not Resolving

// To use any npm package, just import it
// using Axios for HTTP
import axios from "axios"

export default defineComponent({
  async run({ steps, $ }) {
    // "tenantID" value expected in POST request
    const tenantID = steps.trigger.event.body.tenantID
    const env = "gus-training"
    const tenantEndpoint = "https://"+env+""+tenantID
    //Init token
    var access_token = steps.access_token.$return_value

    // Get the config from a tenant
    console.log("getting Config")

   async function getConfig() {
    // Get the config from a tenant
    console.log("getting Config");

    const { conf } = await axios({
      method: "GET",
      headers: {
        'Content-Type': 'application/JSON',
        'Authorization': "Bearer " + access_token,
        'Accept': "*/*",
      url: tenantEndpoint + "/configure/_noInheritance",
      return conf

    var config = await getConfig()

    var sourceArray = config.sources.filter(function (source) {
          return source.label == "CRM"

    await $.respond({
      status: 200,
      headers: {},
      body: {access_token: access_token, CRM: sourceArray},

When I run the above, I get an error: Cannot read property ‘sources’ of undefined
I take this to mean the promise of conf doesn’t resolve. I want to work with the data in conf in the rest of the code/workflow.

I do expect conf to be relatively large (300-400kb).

Can anyone help me understand why this is happening and how to fix it?
I have identical axios calls that do successfully resolve (although with much smaller data amounts), so I’m confused why this is happening here.

To add to the puzzle, I can complete this exact same request using node-fetch/ fetch instead of axios.

This may have been user error that I didn’t use JSON.parse(conf) to parse the response into a JSON format for further use.
