Athena Snowflake Federated Query Fails


Setup a serverlessrepo-AthenaSnowflakeConnector to enable query Federation; after the connector setup i am able to query the tables using data source name and table name but when i tried to use with "lambda:MyLambdaFunctionName" in my select statement got into the below error.

GENERIC_USER_ERROR: Encountered an exception[] from your LambdaFunction[xxxlambdfnxxxx] executed in context[retrieving meta-data] with message[Secrets Manager can't find the specified secret. (Service: AWSSecretsManager; Status Code: 400; Error Code: ResourceNotFoundException; Request ID: ABCD8e00-9999-XXXX-863Y-XX36Y588XNNN; Proxy: null)]
This query ran against the "POCDB" database, unless qualified by the query. Please post the error message on our forum
or contact customer support
with Query Id:XXX7020Y-4Y41-4917-9520-NNN741X0NaNN

Altered the IAM inline policy to provide access to all secrets as well

            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": "secretsmanager:GetSecretValue",
            "Resource": "*"

what is causing the issue any guidance will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Adavnce!

Looking at your error message Secrets Manager can't find the specified secret , it appears that the secret specified while creating your connector is either invalid or unavailable in your account.

Please ensure that you are providing a valid secret name which is present in the account where you are creating the connector. The connector retrieves the username and password from the specified secret.
