When I paste the ARN for my Lambda function into the Default box and click Save Endpoints I get this Error message:

Save Failed

The Lambda ARN arn:aws:lambda:us-east-2:313675029864:function:serverlessrepo-myCodecade-alexaskillskitnodejsfact-VX9T7YZ98B0Y is not valid for any of the supported regions. Error code: SkillManifestError

I copied the ARN for my Lambda function exactly as instructed so I don’t know why I’m getting this error message. Any ideas?
