"We're sorry but the system can't do that right now." - Connector Builder

Options

I'm trying to build a custom connector to draw data from the College Scorecard website. I'm using Javascript to write the data processing script and haven't been receiving any errors with my code. However, when I run the script, a new page opens that says "We're sorry but the system can't do that right now." When the script runs, I'll see the "Sending Data, Creating Dataset, and Success!" updates next to the console, but the page opens regardless and I don't have access to the data. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    Verify permissions in the API.

    Check end points

    const fetch = require('node-fetch');
    const apiKey = 'YOUR_API_KEY';
    const apiUrl = https://api.data.gov/ed/collegescorecard/v1/schools?api_key=${apiKey}; async function fetchData() {
    try {
    const response = await fetch(apiUrl);
    if (!response.ok) {
    throw new Error(HTTP error! Status: ${response.status});
    }
    const data = await response.json();
    console.log(data);
    } catch (error) {
    console.error('Error fetching data:', error);
    }
    } fetchData();

    Check for rate limits in the API.

    const fetch = require('node-fetch');
    const apiKey = 'YOUR_API_KEY';
    const apiUrl = https://api.data.gov/ed/collegescorecard/v1/schools?api_key=${apiKey}; async function fetchData() {
    try {
    const response = await fetch(apiUrl);
    if (!response.ok) {
    if (response.status === 429) {
    console.error('Rate limit exceeded. Try again later.');
    } else {
    console.error(HTTP error! Status: ${response.status});
    }
    return;
    }
    const data = await response.json();
    console.log(data);
    } catch (error) {
    console.error('Error fetching data:', error);
    }
    } fetchData();
