Unable to retrieve Athena workgroups

I am trying to connect an Athena database to my quicksight. I keep getting this error saying " Unable to retrieve Athena workgroups. Wait a few moments and click here to try again."

I checked the Security and Permissions area and both Athena and the relevant S3 buckets have access in Quicksight. That seems to be the only recommended fix I can find online but it did not work for me. FYI I am not the root user on this account.

Have you changed any permissions in the workgroup itself?

I didn’t change any permissions in the workgroup. This is the specific error message I get.

I got it to work. I followed the directions at this link and attached a new IAM policy to the Quicksight role I was using. Thanks Max.
