BadRequestException when having API gateway call BatchPutItem in DynamoDB directly

I have a yml file that works flawlessly to provision an identity pool, user pool and cognito.

I want to have where I can call an API service and have it put that data directly into DynamoDB without a lambda.

I get this error:

An error occurred: EventsDeployment - The REST API doesn’t contain any methods (Service: AmazonApiGateway; Status Code: 400; Error Code: BadRequestException; Request ID: bdee0426-532e-43f1-b2dd-76fa463eff0c; Proxy: null).

This happens whenever I use this block of code in my file. I am thinking the uri may be the cause, but I am not certain.

I am not certain what I did wrong.

I am using frameworkVersion: ‘2’ and I don’t know if that is my issue.
