404 request error on 'doctl database get' command from bash script

I’m using a bash script to provision some database instances. As part of the script, I have a line that retrieves the status of the database instance in a for-loop: currentState=$(doctl databases get ${dbID_array[z]} -o json)

However, every time this executes, I get this error: currentState is: {“errors”:[{“detail”:“GET https://api.digitalocean.com/v2/databases/“6e7b97b9-06e7-44c3-a756-a6024bc56e74”: 404 (request “ea7ed662-a1fa-437a-a22a-c986f2c70d1b”) cluster not found”}]}.

I have a similar issue with the ‘doctl databases delete’ command.

Does this have something to do with authentication?

What is the output of echo ${dbID_array[z]}?

From the error message, it looks like the database’s UUID is formatted: %226e7b97b9-06e7-44c3-a756-a6024bc56e74%22

Yes, “226e7b97b9-06e7-44c3-a756-a6024bc56e74” was the <database id> (when it existed). In the script, I was looking to reference its details and get back the “status”.
