Use Amazon Cognito instead. accessKeyId: "fakeMyKeyId", // secretAccessKey default can be used while using the downloadable version of DynamoDB. // For security reasons, do not store AWS Credentials in your files. Use Amazon Cognito instead. secretAccessKey: "fakeSecretAccessKey" }); var dynamodb = new AWS.DynamoDB(); function deleteMovies() { var params = { TableName : "Movies" }; dynamodb.deleteTable(params, function(err, data) { if (err) { document.getElementById('textarea').innerHTML = "Unable to delete table: " + "\n" + JSON.stringify(err, undefined, 2); } else { document.getElementById('textarea').innerHTML = "Table deleted."; } }); } </script> </head> <body> <input id="deleteTableButton" type="button" value="Delete Table" onclick="deleteMovies();" /> <br><br> <textarea readonly id= "textarea" style="width:400px; height:800px"></textarea> </body> </html>
