I'm trying to build a semantic search engine using Amazon Kendra. I wrote the code on Sagemaker's Jupyter Notebook. I'm stuck at the following part:


response = kendra.query(
    QueryText = "retrieve blue colored shoes from the inventory data",
    IndexId = "xxxxxx"

EndpointConnectionError: Could not connect to the endpoint URL: ""

What I have tried:

My S3 buckets in which I've stored the datasets used in the code have the 'AWS Region' as 'Asia Pacific (Mumbai) ap-south-1'. My Amazon Kendra index too has the same region. Then why is my error talking about some other region: eu-north-1?

Since we cannot see any of your code we cannot guess why your URI is incorrect.

I fixed the error my mentioning the region within the code:

kendra = boto3.client("kendra", region_name='us-east-1')    
index_id = "05d8defe-e2-a9e3-3534de"
query = "boots please"

response = kendra.query(
    QueryText = query1,
    IndexId = index_id
