Next button in last step of Astra Data Loader stays disabled

I am experimenting with Astra (free tier) in preparation for teaching 150 students about Cassandra (among other technologies) in a few weeks. I'm trying to make sure they will be able to upload data - but the loader is not cooperating. I'm getting at it from the "Upload Data" button on the Astra console - looks like a nice easy-to-use utility. I'm trying to upload a tiny CSV with a handful of test rows - I get all the way to the last step, select my target keyspace, and am expecting Next to be enabled to finish the job. BUT - Next never gets highlighted - I am stuck at that point. WHAT AM I MISSING? Help! Thanks! Attached are two screenshots showing (i) a successful upload and the ability to provide key specs and say "Next", and then the screen beyond which I can't proceed. (They are in reverse order below, sorry.) I'd love to figure this out FAST - I have a class to teach.... Thx!stuckloader.pngalmostloaded.png

[UPDATED] The Astra team identified the code in the last release that introduced a bug in the UI.

The fix is scheduled for release tomorrow (Pacific time). Cheers!

Any updates? I can't believe that Astra's data upload feature is broken for everyone - maybe I'm missing some Next-enabling click or something in the near-final step? (I can't see what, though, and I tried a different CSV even though the one I'd tried before seemed to be fine as far as the uploader was concerned.) I'd love to be unstuck soon....

I apologise that this is taking longer than expected.

In the meantime, you can use the DataStax Bulk Loader to load data to your database as a workaround.

I'm sorry that I can't give any estimate as to when the issue will be resolved by Engineering. Cheers!
