Overview

Note:

When passing LocalSecondaryIndex as input to an Aws::Client method, you can use a vanilla Hash:

{
  index_name: "IndexName", # required
  key_schema: [ # required
    {
      attribute_name: "KeySchemaAttributeName", # required
      key_type: "HASH", # required, accepts HASH, RANGE
    },
  ],
  projection: { # required
    projection_type: "ALL", # accepts ALL, KEYS_ONLY, INCLUDE
    non_key_attributes: ["NonKeyAttributeName"],
  },
}

Represents the properties of a local secondary index.

Instance Attribute Details

#index_nameString

The name of the local secondary index. The name must be unique among all other indexes on this table.

Returns:

  • (String)

    The name of the local secondary index.

#key_schemaArray<Types::KeySchemaElement>

The complete key schema for the local secondary index, consisting of one or more pairs of attribute names and key types:

  • HASH - partition key

  • RANGE - sort key

The partition key of an item is also known as its hash attribute. The term \"hash attribute\" derives from DynamoDB\' usage of an internal hash function to evenly distribute data items across partitions, based on their partition key values.

The sort key of an item is also known as its range attribute. The term \"range attribute\" derives from the way DynamoDB stores items with the same partition key physically close together, in sorted order by the sort key value.

Returns:

  • (Array<Types::KeySchemaElement>)

    The complete key schema for the local secondary index, consisting of one or more pairs of attribute names and key types:.

#projectionTypes::Projection

Represents attributes that are copied (projected) from the table into the local secondary index. These are in addition to the primary key attributes and index key attributes, which are automatically projected.

Returns:

  • (Types::Projection)

    Represents attributes that are copied (projected) from the table into the local secondary index.
