    Hello Edward,

    If you look at the error you'll note is is viewing target site as v2019-03-11. This is because if you copy/paste from a PDF the underscore does not always paste correctly. I think if you read the comments in the book closely you'll find a note mentioning the copy paste issue with underscores and single quotes.

    Please run the command with the underscores in place and let us know if you continue to receive an error.

    Regards,

  • Yes, that was the issue. After typing the command, it worked. Let me continue and reach out if any issues.
