Quicksight Workshop Excercise

Hi, I’m trying to complete the Quicksigh workshop. I am trying to do the first exercise under datasets.
For this exercise, you need to use the below URL and connect to a dataset from S3

However, when I try to connect to this I get the error message “We can’t parse the manifest file as a valid JSON. Verify that the file follows theS3 manifest file format and try again.”

Can someone help me identify what I am doing wrong in this case?

Hi @Andrew_BGL,

This works for me, but I can generate the same error you see if the URL isn’t fully formed. For example I removed the “.json” extension from the URL and tried connecting as shown here

Can you confirm that the URL you’re using is exactly as shown below?
