Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Sending a Request Using DynamoDB

var dynamodb = new AWS.DynamoDB();
dynamodb.batchGetItem(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the DynamoDB object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var dynamodb = new AWS.DynamoDB({apiVersion: '2011-12-05'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the dynamodb service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  dynamodb: '2011-12-05',
  // other service API versions
};

var dynamodb = new AWS.DynamoDB();

Version:

  • 2011-12-05

Waiter Resource States

This service supports a list of resource states that can be polled using the waitFor() method. The resource states are:

Constructor Details

new AWS.DynamoDB(options = {}) ⇒ Object

Constructs a service object. This object has one method for each API operation.

Examples:

Constructing a DynamoDB object

var dynamodb = new AWS.DynamoDB({apiVersion: '2011-12-05'});

Options Hash (options):

  • params (map)

    An optional map of parameters to bind to every request sent by this service object. For more information on bound parameters, see "Working with Services" in the Getting Started Guide.

  • endpoint (String)

    The endpoint URI to send requests to. The default endpoint is built from the configured region. The endpoint should be a string like 'https://{service}.{region}.amazonaws.com'.

  • accessKeyId (String)

    your AWS access key ID.

  • secretAccessKey (String)

    your AWS secret access key.

  • sessionToken (AWS.Credentials)

    the optional AWS session token to sign requests with.

  • credentials (AWS.Credentials)

    the AWS credentials to sign requests with. You can either specify this object, or specify the accessKeyId and secretAccessKey options directly.

  • credentialProvider (AWS.CredentialProviderChain)

    the provider chain used to resolve credentials if no static credentials property is set.

  • region (String)

    the region to send service requests to. See AWS.DynamoDB_20111205.region for more information.

  • maxRetries (Integer)

    the maximum amount of retries to attempt with a request. See AWS.DynamoDB_20111205.maxRetries for more information.

  • maxRedirects (Integer)

    the maximum amount of redirects to follow with a request. See AWS.DynamoDB_20111205.maxRedirects for more information.

  • sslEnabled (Boolean)

    whether to enable SSL for requests.

  • paramValidation (Boolean|map)

    whether input parameters should be validated against the operation description before sending the request. Defaults to true. Pass a map to enable any of the following specific validation features:

    • min [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the min constraint. This is enabled by default when paramValidation is set to true.
    • max [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the max constraint.
    • pattern [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches a regular expression.
    • enum [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches one of the allowable enum values.
  • computeChecksums (Boolean)

    whether to compute checksums for payload bodies when the service accepts it (currently supported in S3 only)

  • convertResponseTypes (Boolean)

    whether types are converted when parsing response data. Currently only supported for JSON based services. Turning this off may improve performance on large response payloads. Defaults to true.

  • correctClockSkew (Boolean)

    whether to apply a clock skew correction and retry requests that fail because of an skewed client clock. Defaults to false.

  • s3ForcePathStyle (Boolean)

    whether to force path style URLs for S3 objects.

  • s3BucketEndpoint (Boolean)

    whether the provided endpoint addresses an individual bucket (false if it addresses the root API endpoint). Note that setting this configuration option requires an endpoint to be provided explicitly to the service constructor.

  • s3DisableBodySigning (Boolean)

    whether S3 body signing should be disabled when using signature version v4. Body signing can only be disabled when using https. Defaults to true.

  • retryDelayOptions (map)

    A set of options to configure the retry delay on retryable errors. Currently supported options are:

    • base [Integer] — The base number of milliseconds to use in the exponential backoff for operation retries. Defaults to 100 ms for all services except DynamoDB, where it defaults to 50ms.
    • customBackoff [function] — A custom function that accepts a retry count and returns the amount of time to delay in milliseconds. The base option will be ignored if this option is supplied.
  • httpOptions (map)

    A set of options to pass to the low-level HTTP request. Currently supported options are:

    • proxy [String] — the URL to proxy requests through
    • agent [http.Agent, https.Agent] — the Agent object to perform HTTP requests with. Used for connection pooling. Defaults to the global agent (http.globalAgent) for non-SSL connections. Note that for SSL connections, a special Agent object is used in order to enable peer certificate verification. This feature is only available in the Node.js environment.
    • connectTimeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after failing to establish a connection with the server after connectTimeout milliseconds. This timeout has no effect once a socket connection has been established.
    • timeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after timeout milliseconds of inactivity on the socket. Defaults to two minutes (120000).
    • xhrAsync [Boolean] — Whether the SDK will send asynchronous HTTP requests. Used in the browser environment only. Set to false to send requests synchronously. Defaults to true (async on).
    • xhrWithCredentials [Boolean] — Sets the "withCredentials" property of an XMLHttpRequest object. Used in the browser environment only. Defaults to false.
  • apiVersion (String, Date)

    a String in YYYY-MM-DD format (or a date) that represents the latest possible API version that can be used in all services (unless overridden by apiVersions). Specify 'latest' to use the latest possible version.

  • apiVersions (map<String, String|Date>)

    a map of service identifiers (the lowercase service class name) with the API version to use when instantiating a service. Specify 'latest' for each individual that can use the latest available version.

  • logger (#write, #log)

    an object that responds to .write() (like a stream) or .log() (like the console object) in order to log information about requests

  • systemClockOffset (Number)

    an offset value in milliseconds to apply to all signing times. Use this to compensate for clock skew when your system may be out of sync with the service time. Note that this configuration option can only be applied to the global AWS.config object and cannot be overridden in service-specific configuration. Defaults to 0 milliseconds.

  • signatureVersion (String)

    the signature version to sign requests with (overriding the API configuration). Possible values are: 'v2', 'v3', 'v4'.

  • signatureCache (Boolean)

    whether the signature to sign requests with (overriding the API configuration) is cached. Only applies to the signature version 'v4'. Defaults to true.

  • dynamoDbCrc32 (Boolean)

    whether to validate the CRC32 checksum of HTTP response bodies returned by DynamoDB. Default: true.

Property Details

endpointAWS.Endpoint (readwrite)

Returns an Endpoint object representing the endpoint URL for service requests.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Endpoint)

    an Endpoint object representing the endpoint URL for service requests.

Method Details

batchGetItem(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Retrieves the attributes for multiple items from multiple tables using their primary keys.

The maximum number of item attributes that can be retrieved for a single operation is 100. Also, the number of items retrieved is constrained by a 1 MB the size limit. If the response size limit is exceeded or a partial result is returned due to an internal processing failure, Amazon DynamoDB returns an UnprocessedKeys value so you can retry the operation starting with the next item to get.

Amazon DynamoDB automatically adjusts the number of items returned per page to enforce this limit. For example, even if you ask to retrieve 100 items, but each individual item is 50k in size, the system returns 20 items and an appropriate UnprocessedKeys value so you can get the next page of results. If necessary, your application needs its own logic to assemble the pages of results into one set.

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createTable(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Adds a new table to your account.

The table name must be unique among those associated with the AWS Account issuing the request, and the AWS Region that receives the request (e.g. us-east-1).

The CreateTable operation triggers an asynchronous workflow to begin creating the table. Amazon DynamoDB immediately returns the state of the table (CREATING) until the table is in the ACTIVE state. Once the table is in the ACTIVE state, you can perform data plane operations.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the createTable operation

var params = {
  KeySchema: { /* required */
    HashKeyElement: { /* required */
      AttributeName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */

    }
  },
  ProvisionedThroughput: { /* required */
    ReadCapacityUnits: 0, /* required */
    WriteCapacityUnits: 0 /* required */
  },
  TableName: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
dynamodb.createTable(params, function(err, data) {

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • TableName — (String)

      The name of the table in which you want to query. Allowed characters are a-z, A-Z, 0-9, _ (underscore), - (hyphen) and . (period).

    • AttributesToGet — (Array<String>)

      List of Attribute names. If attribute names are not specified then all attributes will be returned. If some attributes are not found, they will not appear in the result.

    • Limit — (Integer)

      The maximum number of items to return. If Amazon DynamoDB hits this limit while querying the table, it stops the query and returns the matching values up to the limit, and a LastEvaluatedKey to apply in a subsequent operation to continue the query. Also, if the result set size exceeds 1MB before Amazon DynamoDB hits this limit, it stops the query and returns the matching values, and a LastEvaluatedKey to apply in a subsequent operation to continue the query.

    • ConsistentRead — (Boolean)

      If set to true, then a consistent read is issued. Otherwise eventually-consistent is used.

    • Count — (Boolean)

      If set to true, Amazon DynamoDB returns a total number of items that match the query parameters, instead of a list of the matching items and their attributes. Do not set Count to true while providing a list of AttributesToGet, otherwise Amazon DynamoDB returns a validation error.

    • HashKeyValue — (map)

      Attribute value of the hash component of the composite primary key.

      • S — (String)

        Strings are Unicode with UTF-8 binary encoding. The maximum size is limited by the size of the primary key (1024 bytes as a range part of a key or 2048 bytes as a single part hash key) or the item size (64k).

      • N — (String)

        Numbers are positive or negative exact-value decimals and integers. A number can have up to 38 digits precision and can be between 10^-128 to 10^+126.

      • AttributeValueList — (Array<map>)

        A list of attribute values to be used with a comparison operator for a scan or query operation. For comparisons that require more than one value, such as a BETWEEN comparison, the AttributeValueList contains two attribute values and the comparison operator.

        • S — (String)

          Strings are Unicode with UTF-8 binary encoding. The maximum size is limited by the size of the primary key (1024 bytes as a range part of a key or 2048 bytes as a single part hash key) or the item size (64k).

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

See Also:

dynamodb.waitFor('tableNotExists', params = {}, [callback]) ⇒ AWS.Request

Waits for the tableNotExists state by periodically calling the underlying DynamoDB_20111205.describeTable() operation every 20 seconds (at most 25 times).

Examples:

Waiting for the tableNotExists state

var params = {
  TableName: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
dynamodb_20111205.waitFor('tableNotExists', params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object)
    • TableName — (String)

      The name of the table you want to describe. Allowed characters are a-z, A-Z, 0-9, _ (underscore), - (hyphen) and . (period).

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • Table — (map)
        • TableName — (String)

          The name of the table being described.

        • KeySchema — (map)

          The KeySchema identifies the primary key as a one attribute primary key (hash) or a composite two attribute (hash-and-range) primary key. Single attribute primary keys have one index value: a HashKeyElement. A composite hash-and-range primary key contains two attribute values: a HashKeyElement and a RangeKeyElement.

          • HashKeyElementrequired — (map)

            A hash key element is treated as the primary key, and can be a string or a number. Single attribute primary keys have one index value. The value can be String, Number, StringSet, NumberSet.

            • AttributeNamerequired — (String)

              The AttributeName of the KeySchemaElement.

            • AttributeTyperequired — (String)

              The AttributeType of the KeySchemaElement which can be a String or a Number.

              Possible values include:
              • "S"
              • "N"
              • "B"
          • RangeKeyElement — (map)

            A range key element is treated as a secondary key (used in conjunction with the primary key), and can be a string or a number, and is only used for hash-and-range primary keys. The value can be String, Number, StringSet, NumberSet.

            • AttributeNamerequired — (String)

              The AttributeName of the KeySchemaElement.

            • AttributeTyperequired — (String)

              The AttributeType of the KeySchemaElement which can be a String or a Number.
