S3 Access Denied issue


quick sight is throwing permission denied issue even after providing access to that respective S3 bucket . Below are the steps I have followed and please find the attached screenshots for reference.

  1. Created s3 buckets and placed all the tables data in parquet files
  2. Created a db in AWS glue and ported tables trough crawlers
  3. tables executing in athena
  4. given s3 and athena permissions in quick sight and tried to access these tables using athena as datasource
