Accessing SA2 data for building approvals

Hi, just a note that the url provided in the examples file for the API for BA_SA2 1.1.0 Building Approvals by SA2 and above (row 418), which is:
https://api.data.abs.gov.au/data/ABS,BA_SA2/1.1.0/..TOT.TOT..0.M?startPeriod=2020
returns an error that states:
Not enough key values in query, expecting 7 got 3
Would it be possible to see a working url, so I can figure out what the missing values are?
Many thanks for any help,
Scott

Good pick up, looks like an error in the example URL for this dataset. The correct URL should be: https://api.data.abs.gov.au/data/ABS,BA_SA2/..TOT.TOT..0.M?startPeriod=2020

The example files in our documentation will be updated soon.

Cheers
Hugh
