Demo data bucket not visible in notebook dropdown

hello, I am following the ‘Getting Started’ tutorial. I loaded the demo data and created the notebook. When I try to choose a bucket, the demo data bucket is not listed. I tried twice and waited a while to make sure things happened in the background but to no avail.

Any advise?

Hello @i_code,
Which getting started tutorial are you following? Can you please link it here?
Can you confirm that you’ve successfully created a bucket under Explorer>buckets?

I ended up importing the demo data

Hello @i_code,
Importing the demo data doesn’t write it to InfluxDB…that is if you mean
https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v2.0/reference/sample-data/
You can use the to() function to actually write that data to a bucket though.
