"Error parsing url" attempting to HTTP bind perspective component

I am just simply trying to bind this to a custom property. The URL endpoint in question is just a simple api that returns a json, no auth body, or headers are required from the endpoint. I get the following error which seems rather ambiguous.

Sounds too simple to be the answer, but the manual has the url enclosed with double quotes.
HTTP Bindings in Perspective - Ignition User Manual 8.1 - Ignition Documentation (inductiveautomation.com)

Yeah, the URL field is supposed to be an expression.

Thanks I just figured that out, which makes sense since at some point I will need the URLs to be dynamic, so string literals need quotes basically
