Events are not forwarding to AWS SQS

We have deployed Sentry v10 using the on-premise repository. We followed the guide from that repository and we have a working Sentry installation. Next, I created a project and tried to configure data forwarding to AWS SQS. However, when I intentionally throw exceptions to generate events in Sentry, nothing is being forwarded to SQS. There are no errors in the logs, no messages in the queue, and on my projects data forwarding settings it shows that it hasnt forwarded any data.

Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks in advance!
