Access denied error while creating Data Filter in Lake Formation



I am signed in with a userId which has IAM Administrator access and DataLake Administrator access. The userId also has permissions to table columns set up in Lake Formation. However when creating a Data Filter on a table using console, I get following error message.

Error creating data cell filter: data-filter-1. Not authorized to create filter.

Any suggestions to resolve the issue will be greatly appreciated.

  • Error is encountered in Singapore region, tested in N.Virginia and works ok in that region.

The governed tables, transaction support, row-level security, and storage optimizations features for Lake Formation are available in the following AWS Regions.

US East (N. Virginia) (us-east-1)

US East (Ohio) (us-east-2)

US West (Oregon) (us-west-2)

Europe (Ireland) (eu-west-1)

Asia Pacific (Tokyo) (ap-northeast-1)

Data filters are not available in Singapore region yet and that's the reason you're seeing the error.
