    octavia list connectors destinations works - I get a list of connectors, including the S3 connector with destination image number 4816b78f-1489-44c1-9060-4b19d5fa9362
    However, when I run:
    octavia generate destination 4816b78f-1489-44c1-9060-4b19d5fa9362 s3

I get:

  • Octavia is targetting your Airbyte instance running at http://localhost:8000 on workspace 80aad121-ae3f-43da-81d8-b41a4b79d424.
    Error: Definition 4816b78f-1489-44c1-9060-4b19d5fa9362 does not exists on your Airbyte instance.

What am I doing wrong?
Thanks, Eliot

Hey Eliot,
Could you please make sure your octavia-cli version matches your Airbyte version?
You can check octavia-cli version by looking at your ~/.zsrhc or ~/.bashrc file and check the image name like airbyte/octavia-cli:0.38.3-alpha . (We plan to make it easier to find the version you’re running).


How can I tell what version of airbyte I have?

The Airbyte version is displayed at the bottom of the left sidebar:

airbyte version 36.2-alpha. Octavia version 38.4. Could that be causing the problem?

Yes it could, do you mind upgrading Airbyte to 38.4?
