Error when trying to generate offline areas

I'm attempting to automate the creation of a set of offline areas from a AGOL web map. I've created a couple of areas for this web map manually through AGOL with no problem. However, when attempting this with the Python API, I'm getting errors. My web map is very simple and only contains a vector basemap.

Any ideas on the source of this error?

In the example below, I use a bookmark for the area, but the same error occurs if I use an extent.

Using this command:

offlineItem = oWebMap.offline_areas.create(area='TAE', item_properties=oLine_properties)


The bookmark itself:
{       "extent": {         "spatialReference": {           "wkid": 102100         },         "xmax": -9311960.288686637,         "xmin": -9457037.768371958,         "ymax": 3644687.9398760623,         "ymin": 3470105.7672726526       },       "name": "TAE"

oLine_properties = {'title': 'TAE1',
 'tags': ['DAT'],
 'snippet': 'Offline Map for TAE CWA'}

The error:

I'm having the same issue when attempting to create an offline area from an extent and a bookmark.  I'm getting the following error message.  I've imported the mapping and geometry packages but that didn't fix it.

NameError Traceback (most recent call last)

I know this is an old post, but I too am having this issue. 

{"code": 24, "messageCode": "OffPkg_ 24", "message": "Parameter extent is invalid or exceeded limit.", "params": {"name": "extent"}}
Failed to execute (CreateMapArea).

Anything new here ESRI?
