Step 5: (Optional) Delete the Table

In this step, you delete the Movies table. This is an optional step. If you want, you can keep the Movies table and write your own programs to work with the data.

  1. Copy the following program into a file named MoviesDeleteTable.rb.

    require "aws-sdk-core"
    
    Aws.config.update({
      region: "us-west-2",
      endpoint: "http://localhost:8000"
    })
    
    dynamodb = Aws::DynamoDB::Client.new
    
    params = {
        table_name: "Movies"
    }
    
    begin
        result = dynamodb.delete_table(params)
        puts "Deleted table."
    
    rescue  Aws::DynamoDB::Errors::ServiceError => error
        puts "Unable to delete table:"
        puts "#{error.message}"
    end
    
  2. Type the following command to run the program:

    ruby MoviesDeleteTable.rb
