Fail with error '27' - Aave flashloans solidity

I have succesfully deployed the contract to the goerli testnet, via hardhat. However when I try to call the requestFlashLoan function with metamask, the transaction suggested gas fee seems unusually large and fails with the error “Fail with error ‘27’”. I have found this to mean ‘The caller of the function is not the lending pool configurator’. However I am still stuck on how to actually fix this.

Been stuck on this for a couple of days now, any direction would be much appreciated!

Hello guy, i think you try to borrow to a wrong address token pool.<

The function requestFlashLoan(_token, _amount)
takes 2 parameters : address of token you want to borrow and amount

I think you pass a wrong address of token to first parameter.

Try to use this official address of USDC Pool on AAVE V3 Testnet :

(see this address on documentation : V3 Testnet Addresses - Developers)

All addresses of tokens you can borrow on a flashloan is on this documentation

Ah, yes that did it! Indeed I had used the wrong USDC contract address! Very much appreciated! :smiley:
